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.

We only accept type ‘loc’. When ‘int’ is specified we answer with a 2306 parameter value policy error.

Yes, we limit to a set of 200 characters. This set covers the most frequently used characters in Belgium. Because we want our support to be able to read the entered data and we want to be able to reproduce all entered characters in pdf documents, like our WHOIS certificate.
