if you feel that everyone on the internet deserves high speed access to
an access method allowing them to discover the registrar name and/or
domain age of every domain held through an icann accredited registrar,
and that the burden of providing this information in an accurate timely
manner must be shifted to and carried by each icann accredited
registrar, then i urge you to make your views known at:


there is a mailing list for suggestions. a draft report of this
committee's recommendations to icall on identifier technology innovation
is now being written. it is not too late for a public groundswell on
this precise matter to have an impact on the committee's report.
