Re: [council] Issues Report on specified Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy issues

I suppose that it could be easier to deal with four very specific issues
in one PDP and then initiate another PDP for the remaining issues.  It
might be useful to have the planning group focus on this.

The working group recommended, and Council approved, that the work proceed as a series of scope-limited PDPs, where appropriate, to ensure that constant improvement was made possible and within the timelines of the PDP specified in the bylaws. The prioritization committee will set out to establish a calendar of specific topics that can be picked up by work under the PDP. Although it isn't explicit in our mandate, I had always assumed that if other transfers related PDP work needed to be prioritized, that the committee could take care of this as well.

So, I would expect a series of short, snappy policy development exercises on this topic instead of one big monolithic one that tries to address all of the issues in one fell swoop. We have seen that the latter approach doesn't seem to work particularly well (i.e. Whois) whereas the former has worked quite well.

I hope this helps clarify.
