Maybe they need credit card information for renewals.... That's at least one reasonable interpretation of "billing information."

Subject: [ga] Question to ICANN Staff

In the ICANN Announcement regarding the Bulk Transfer of Maxim Internet Domains to NameScout, this question is posed and answered:

Q. Why do former Maxim Internet customers need to contact NameScout?

A. Maxim Internet did not forward billing information to NameScout. Accordingly, all registrants must provide updated billing information or transfer their names to other registrars.

I fail to comprehend why registrants must proactively make such contact when ICANN has in place Registrar Data Escrow Specifications that require:

(1.2.7) "The name and (where available) postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number of the billing contact."
(See http://www.icann.org/en/rde/rde-specs-09nov07.pdf)

Why isn't the escrowed data being used?
