[dns-operations] Who is xn--j1amh.? Well, the general problem...

One of the things I have "some issues with" is the introduction of a new TLD, especially one that is a so-called IDN name.

The delegation appears in the root and then later information appears in the IANA WhoIs.  In this case, there is "something" in the WhoIs, but nothing much useful.

In the spirit of "contacting the source first" I have.  This has happened a few times in the past and I've send a note to IANA about this.  What I'm doing here is asking if others have issues with this.

What I'd expect is that before a DNS delegation is put in place, the WhoIs is updated as well as any other source of info (the website, I know), and, most operationally, contact information!

PS - And, I would like to know "who" that string belongs to.

PPS - Here's my whois lookup at 9am (-0500) today.

$ whois -h whois.iana.org XN--J1AMH.
