Subject: [ispcp] ISPCP Statement on New Registry Services

> Regarding the Proposed Issues Report on Registry Services
> Internet Service Providers and Connectivity Providers Constituency
> The ISPCP Constituency has a direct connection with a significant body of
> Internet stakeholders.  Our customers - those people connected to the
> Internet - are the people and organizations most affected by unexpected
> changes in the Internet.  This includes the introduction of new or
> registry services.  Naturally, the ISPCP constituency needs to be a
> significant contributor to the Registry Services PDP process.
> ISPs are in a unique position to help guide policy development on new
> registry services. As those who have been largely responsible for the
> stability of the Internet, we believe that it is vitally important that
> GNSO and its Council balance the need to move quickly on potential
> services while thoughtfully thinking through operational and legal impacts
> of any recommendations. Our constituency actively supports the principle
> maintaining the stability that the Internet has always enjoyed.
> Specifically, we believe that there is a requirement for technical,
> and stability reviews for any newly proposed registry service.  In
> we believe that any significant change to registry services - that
> significantly changes or alters fundamental functions of DNS related
> services - should also be subject to an explicit and extensive security,
> stability and technical review.
> No other group in the GNSO is as well positioned as the ISPCP to
> the technical evaluation of the protocol and operational impacts of a
> proposed change to registry services.  Our constituency works daily with
> both the protocol standards that make the DNS work and is fully aware of
> operational issues that are not part of the protocols, but which are
> embedded in the operational behavior of Internet protocols and services.
> Fundamentally, our constituency believes that:
> " No new registry service should be introduced without an explicit
> evaluation of its technical, stability and security implications;
> " No significant changes to registry services should take place that
> have the potential to significantly change the behaviour of underlying
> Internet services;
> " The ISPCP constituency should be a central contributor to any
> discussion of the technical implications of the introduction of new
> services;
> " All constituencies should be bound by the "principle of least
> astonishment" in the development of new services that affect the
> protocols of the Internet; and,
> " All constituencies should be bound by principles of operational
> security and stability for the Internet's user community.
> On behalf of the ISPCP Constituency,
