Bhavin, I agree with your sentiments. From a Registrar's business and
operational perspective, I would think a high priority should be placed on
achieving stability for basic Registrar services such as transfers,
deletions, whois, etc. I personally didn't pay much attention to the WLS
issue since I considered it a service proposal that would go through a
lengthy advisory process following a resolution of the more pressing issues
on the table.
Now I see postings with subject lines like "WLS go ahead???" and I'm very
concerned as I hope many other Registrars are if this is happening so
quickly. I can understand if there was a high customer demand but I don't
see it. Has anyone else?
