Hello All,


Per my comments yesterday during our open plenary call, I made very clear that it is my strong desire to have our work complete by ICANN75.  In order for that to happen, there may be times that I will have to gently nudge in a neutral fashion people to get things done.  In advance of our call next week, I want to tee up a more in-depth discussion of a working accuracy definition.


Listed below is current definition that the RrSG has extracted from the RAA:


Accuracy shall be strictly defined as syntactical accuracy of the registration data elements provided by the Registered Name Holder as well as the operational accuracy of either the telephone number or the email address.


Having read all the documents and listened to all of the comments/discussion I would like to put on the table for consideration/discussion the following friendly amendment.


Accuracy encompasses both syntactical accuracy and operational accuracy of Registration Data Directory Service (RDDS) data elements processed by Registrars. Syntactical accuracy is imposed on all RDDS data elements processed by Registrars, whereas operational accuracy is only required of either email or telephone of RDDS data elements.  An additional requirement of operational accuracy is an affirmative response from the recipient to the confirmation request.


The basis of these friendly amendments are as follows:


*	I am proposing the definition to include syntactical and operational accuracy for ALL data elements that are processes (including voluntary ones) not just mandated ones. If a registrar is collecting data elements they should apply the same standard to all elements, both mandatory and voluntary.
*	I do not believe that the operational aspect of the RrSG definition properly encapsulated the affirmative response component set forth in the Whois Accuracy Program Specification.


Any thoughts or comments.


If there are any alternative definitions, I ask that they be provided to the group via the mailing list 24 hours prior to our next call.


Best regards,
