Re: [registrars] Xfer of SLD sponsorship/ EU Investigation/ Minutes of Teleconference

michael & all...

i believe that there has to be some sort of documentation requirement but
notarized statments are not practical in many countries and most definitely
not a "global business practices".

documentation has to be considered in light of both economics as well as
"universally accepted global business  practice".
some sort of a redundant "internet-based"  answerback e-mail confirmation
would seem to be more appropriate to me
