[gtld-tech] WHOIS clarification needed for host attributes

Hi all,

According to the spec 4 of the registry agreement we should output following fields when querying for a name server: Registrar, WHOIS server and Referral URL.
If I understand correctly they are also obligated and therefor cannot be left blank.

Which data should be displayed for those fields when the registry uses host attributes? I cannot think of anything logic.

Are there other registries using host attributes?

Kind regards,
