RE: Notification (RE: [wg-b] Preliminary Questions)

Harald, I was thinking that the database/notification function might be
centralized (maybe under the registry --but the present one doesn't seem
interested --) so I thought about whether a centralized service could be
provided to all the registrars, rather than them having to all
develop/maintain, etc.  ?

If we come to the conclusion that the databases and notification functions 
do not have to be part of the registrar/registrant function, but can be 
left to private enterprise, the question of who gets to set up 
notifications is a question that the market can work out for itself; those 
who are willing to pay for the service will have the service.
