RE: [nc-deletes] Time to Vote

Title: RE: [nc-deletes] Time to Vote

How I envisage that working is when a domain is registered, the confirmation includes the information (and of course the ts&cs prior to registration include the info)along the following lines: 

"in the event that you do not renew your domain name prior to expiry of its term, the domain name will lapse.  The domain name will not immediately cease to function or become available to others to register.  Instead there will be a period of [x/x-y] days during which you will be able to reregister the domain name by paying the normal registration fee to us.  After that period, the domain will be deleted and will no longer function, but there will be a period of 30 days during which you will be able to redeem the domain name before it becomes generally available for registration.  If you redeem your domain name during this period you will be charged an additional recovery fee.  This recovery fee is currently set at $z, however this price may vary from time to time without notice to you.  The price will be published on our website at www.whatever.blob"

What we want is for registrants to know up front what the score is, but this doesn't have to be in a way that the registrar is bound by the price notified at the outset.

Apologies for sending this in late (too late?)  A question about

       3.1.6 Registrars should provide, both at the time of
registration and in a conspicuous place on their website, the fee
charged for the recovery of a domain name during the Redemption Grace

"at the time of registration" -- as names are registered for at least
a year, is there a risk in asking registrars to commit to a fee so
far in the future? I think "in a conspicuous place on their website"
is fine and probably enough.

Too late?
