The issue here is that you DO NOT send an explicit renew if you wish to
renew the name. that's where the problem stems from. Therefore the
registry never knows that you have renewed the name on our side
This would actually require a modification to RRP and their
implementation of AUTO-RENEW where an explicit renew command needs to be
sent, and if it is not sent then the domain would be deleted after 45
days. This is the opposite behaviour of the current "assumed renewed
after 45 days" behaviour
