Some comments of Acreditation Guidelines
In reference to: A. Contemplated Structure of the Domain Name
Registration Business from the ICANN's web site the following questions
that we (INEGroup) have some comments and proposed answers to.
Q1. Is the segmented model for the provision of domain name registration
services described above appropriate? How could or should it evolve over
Answer/Comment - As segmented model is inappropriate for the furtherance
of strong growth in the Registrar/Registry business and industry and
hamper or otherwise impair stability in the internet accordingly.
Rather a more
free form model would be more appropriate to meet the continuing and
potentially ongoing demands of the stakeholder community as many have
already pointed out over the past two or three years.
Q2. Are there any reasons why resellers should be accredited?
Answer/Comments - Accrediting resellers has advantages and disadvantages
that are difficult to judge in advance. There should be some general
very basic guidelines, but full accreditation would be both difficult to
oversee as well as potentially more expensive than the benefit would
be worth in the long run.
B. The Goals: Preserving the Stability of the Internet and Introducing
Q3. In the context of accrediting registrars for the DNS system, is
universal and durable resolution of domain names an important
preservation of the Internet's stability? Are there other
stability issues that are
particularly relevant in that context?
Answer/Comment - The term durable resolution is an ephemeral one
on how you view that subject area.
What is important
with respect to stability is multiple
and redundant DNS
architectures (More than one). Any
has the advantage of being well
understood, but also has
the disadvantage of becoming our of
date from a technological
standpoint, and therefore provides for
long term instability and
lacks forethought and efficiency. It
also hampers the incentive
for further development of DNS itself
as it evolves leading
to non-competitiveness. We believe
that we are at this
juncture with already existing DNS
architectures such as
GRS and SROOTS already in existence
