IDN administrative bundling
2012-03-30 01:46:41 GMT
CIRA is considering the implementation of administrative bundling for the release of French character IDNs in the registry. Under the proposed policy, each IDN domain would be independent from a registration and DNS management perspective. However, all domains that share the same canonical form as defined by our policy (café.ca, cafe.ca, çafe.ca …) would have to be registered by the same registrar and to the same registrant contact id.
We have started discussing the registry implementation, and one of the biggest challenges comes with registrar transfers or the updating a domain’s registrant contact id. Under our proposed policy we have to find a way to ensure that all registered variants maintain the same registrar and registrant contact.
The most promising implementation proposal is to queue the update and transfer requests until a request has been submitted for all variants in a bundle. While we wait for all actions, would apply “pendingTransfer” and “pendingUpdate” statuses as described in sections 2.3 and 3.3 of RFC 5731.
1 – Does anyone know of a similar domain bundling policy so that we could look at its implementation? Or might there be an RFC that would define something similar?
2 – Does anyone on this list have experience for using offline review of requested actions other than transfer? Is there anything we should be careful about in picking this implementation?
3 – With domain transfer, there is a defined way of cancelling a pending transfer (as per section 188.8.131.52 of RFC 5730), but for a pending domain update, there is no defined way to cancel a pending operation. Any suggestions out there.
