Congratulations, you just reinvented DREG.

Hi! Stephane,
Not exactly if you read what I propose :-) But I am not an XML specialist, and many things can be related? However I wish to see the RFC 3688 implemented (or may be I missed a new IANA site ?) to better udnerstand/measure what all this has as technical implication. As far as I understand IRIS is still a draft and DREG depends on IRIS? Also, technically I am not sure that XML is a final solution, however it is certainly a complex but powefull way to think. I was not a Pick pro, but I learned a few things there in that context which make me feel we may be only half the way through? I feel MPEG has a few good things to bring too?

My suggestion is more to consider the domain name of today in the perspective of real world rights, usage, etc and its evolutive user perception as a the vector of rights, licenses, autority, etc. than to make survive the WHOIS paradygm and to only stick to the 1983 accidental naming semantic.

Please note this is GA, not IETF. So the focus is more on IPs and practical usage issues than on DNS softwares.
