RE: [nc-whois] registrar/registrar participation; editing

I think it's a fair point, but I think the message is really that while there is seemingly low participation from registrar/registries, the world of such entities is very limited as compared to the world of individuals, governments, etc.  I think there should be a way to reflect this, not knowing what the actual participation is.

Thanks for pointing out the issue of registry/registrar. VERY valid.

Thanks to Marilyn and Karen for their drafts, which I could finally print

I?ve found nothing obvious with which I would be uncomfortable.  However,
be a bit cautious with the note suggested by Marilyn that, while only a
number of registrar/registry respondents participated in the survey, these
represent a high percentage of accredited registrars/registries.

I?m not so sure it?s safe to draw that conclusion:  We don?t know at all
whether there were any registry participants.  Even if there were
it seems likely that they are vastly outnumbered by registrars (correct me
I?m wrong).  Further, we don?t know if we have, at least approximately, one
participant per registrar/registry.

But maybe, I?m just a little bit over-cautious. :-)

On a related note, it doesn?t look like I?ll be able to do any editing this
week.  The approach I planned to take didn?t work out so far due to format
conversion issues.  For this reason, expect that any further drafts and
this week will be done by Abel Wisman, who has a copy of the master document
used, and uses the same kind of Office software.

See you later on the conference call, and kind regards,

Thomas Roessler
