Hi, my 2 cents:

(1) I think the solution is just not right. It's a quick and dirty way of doing 
these things. The right way imo is defining a new RDAP extension (with a 
dedicated attribute to identify the authoritative source)

(2) In my opinion there are other, existing, mechanisms for discovering 
entities (and mentioned in the draft: self links).

I think you have the use case incorrect. This isn't about discovering entities, 
it's about being able to bootstrap a query for an entity when you have no other 
information available in much the same way that domain queries can be 
bootstrapped as described in RFC 7484. You can't use self links if all you have 
to start with is something that looks like "ABC123". So please fill me in if 
you can think of a way for a client to receive an entity handle like "ABC123" 
and determine which is the authoritative server for that entity in the absence 
of any other information.
