Thanks.  The touchstone for me is whether a registrant can successfully
transfer his registration from one registrar to another.  With respect to
the registrant's DNS service, I believe this is most often provided free of
charge by the registrar as part of the registrar's service.  As a
consequence, when the registrant moves their registration to
another registrar, they will also have to move their DNS service.  As
things stand, I believe this often means there will be a disruption in
resolution.  And for a signed zone, this also means a disruption in

If I understand your point, you're saying because this was not raised in
the issues report, it's not in scope for this PDP.  Putting these points
together, the goal for this PDP is to reach consensus on how a registrant
can transfer their registration from one registrar to another with the
understanding they will likely not be able to sustain uninterrupted service.
