A not that many of the gTLD registrars that have signed the 2013 RAA are
new required to support the format [1] specified in the 2013 RAA. See
section 1.4.2 [2] for the specific format and requirements, optional
fields. This should greatly reduce the number of parsers that you write.

Also note that all the newGTLDs support a similar format, leaving the
ccTLDs as the odd implementations.
