Hello all,

I received privately the mail attached below from Danny Younger asking
to initiate a PDP in regard to the modified deletion processes of some
registrars. Could the ICANN legal council please advice us on how to proceed
with this request.

----- Forwarded message from Danny Younger <dannyyounger@xxxxxxxxx> -----

The Registrar Accreditation Agreement (section 4.2) indicates that new and 
revised specifications and policies may be established on the topic of 
"prohibitions on warehousing of or speculation in domain names by registries or 
registrars"; I ask that the Names Council initiate a Policy Development Process 
on this topic in view of recent events first noted in the ICANN Advisory 
"Registrar Expired Name Market Developments" posted 21 September 2004.  

At issue:  If registrants fail to renew their domain names at the conclusion of 
an expiration grace period, certain registrars are planning to auction the 
rights to these domain names, instead of allowing them to "drop back into the 
pool" of names available for re-registration on a first-come, first-served 
basis, as is currently the process.

Discussion on this issue has already begun in the At-Large Forum and on the 
Registrars Discussion List wherein it has already been noted by the Registrars 
Constituency Chair that "registrars are modifying their contracts to take over 
the ownership of the name after expiry; the registrant has changed, and the 
registrar is themselves the new registrant." 

I see an effort designed to thwart the implementation of the Expired Domain 
Deletion Policy which is scheduled to commence 21 December 2004.  A policy is 
needed to deal with these developments.

Thank you for considering this matter,

Best regards,

Danny Younger
