Good morning:

Well, you guys have been having a busy night!
Alan: I think you have got your answer.

(Should ICANN try to impose a uniform system it would be most likely too lax to conform to GDPR for natural persons.)

Regards

CW (Monday morning!)

The words vary, but in essence what they are saying ranges from there should be no constraint on them to yes, they may differentiate but with an unspecified time-frame.  (As you may note if you looked at the RDS-WHOIS2 report, registrars under the 2013 RAA must do some validation of contact information for new an transfered domains, but none to simple renewal. so there are currently 140,000,000 domains without verified information (5 years after the 2013 RAA came into force) and there is no requirement to ever validate their information - so unspecified time frames can last a LONG time.)
