Subject: [regext] WG I-Ds in the IANA EPP Extensions Registry

Hello colleagues,

The gTLD base registry agreement requires Registries to provide and update the 
relevant documentation of all the EPP Objects and Extensions supported to ICANN 
prior to deployment. Currently, in order to comply with this provision, 
Registries upload their documentation through a portal maintained by ICANN.

The proposal for the new version of this portal is to periodically download the 
EPP extensions registry 
( allowing 
the registry to select entries from the IANA Registry. In other words, the EPP 
extension must be registered in the IANA EPP Registry in order to comply with 
this contractual provision.

Several Registries have implemented EPP extensions described in WG I-Ds that 
are not registered in the IANA EPP registry. Is it appropriate to register a 
*WG* I-D in the IANA EPP Registry or should the author wait until the I-D 
becomes an RFC? Should it be a requirement to register the EPP extension in the 
IANA EPP registry shortly after becoming a WG item?

[SAH] I believe it is more appropriate for an extension that is being developed 
through the IETF process to be registered only after it has been approved for 
publication as an RFC. Internet-Drafts are not guaranteed to be published as 
RFCs, and the specifications they describe can change before they are 
ultimately approved for RFC publication.
