[nc-whois] Final Report -- another draft.
This is a draft of what our final report may look like, following
the discussion on today's conference call. The document consists of
3 chapters: Recommendations, Discussion of the Implementation
Committee's Report, and Comments Received in Response to the Policy
Chapter I.1 contains three (!!) consensus policies on the accuracy
of WHOIS data. A and B are the old consensus policies as revised by
the implementation committee. C is the complaint process as
suggested by the implementation committee, with the changes
suggested in Steve's draft. (I've also added an introductory
sentence.) This includes, at this point of time, a reversal of the
15 days -> 30 days change proposed by the implementation committee,
in order to keep the various document synchronized.
Chapter I.2 contains two consensus policies on bulk access. A is
the proposed change to 188.8.131.52, and the deletion of 184.108.40.206; B is
the may -> shall change in 220.127.116.11.
Chapter I.3 contains "practical recommendations" on the accuracy of
WHOIS data. This is the old chapter 3.1.I, with considerable
changes (marked by underlining and overstriking):
- The posting of registrar contact points on ICANN's web site is
- There's a new recommendation on how the 15 day period should be
handled. I have tried to capture Marilyn's proposed compromise.
Please don't blame any details on her -- I've written that text.
- The old recommendation on the 15 day period is deleted.
- The old recommendation on not accepting unverified corrected data
is deleted -- that's the new consensus policy I.C.
Chapter II will contain Steve's detailed discussion of the
Implementation Committee's report; I have not yet pasted his text
into the HTML version (and I'll only do that on the latest
Chapter III contains the comments; that was annex B of the previous
I have not included a verbatim copy of the policy report, but linked
to it as an "attachment" from the Table of Contents.
As an advance warning, please note that I MAY leave on Sunday for
the ICANN Studienkreis meeting in Berlin early next week. If that
happens, I won't be able to work on the report between Sunday and
