Currently, we use the "int" type exclusively, but looking at the recent developtments in the "IRD" area (http://singapore49.icann.org/en/schedule/wed-ird-requirements), we're looking into the options to move forward with allowing "loc" postalInfo types as well.

Either "loc" or "int" the other is optional

> - For registries that allow both "loc" and "int", which of the two are you displaying in WHOIS? Are you trying to serve "different views" depending on user location or (in the case of web whois) user agent information (eg. "accept-language" header?)

"loc" falling back to "int" - besides that, nothing fancy
