[gtld-tech] Delegated strings: WHOIS & SLAs...

Whilst right now putting in the SRV record for WhoIs would be against our contracts, ICANN has committed that if that path is the chosen path for WEIRDS they would amend our contracts to allow it to be used. I see no reason why we can't have such amendment done now.

Can an ICANN staffer on this list please comment?

Considering that there have been apex A and AAAA records in many ccTLDs for 15 years, probably not.  I don't think SRV at the TLD apex is a problem, but there's a lot of both good and bad cruft floating around.
