interQ supports option 1.
While we as registrars will want to review the SLA, particularly
after the first 6 months, I believe we must have something as
a starting point. I don't believe it will be difficult to raise the
standards later on, once we have data that can back up why
it makes sense to do so.
Basically I think the "best effort" approach for the SLA is
appropriate, and what we currently have achieved.
