The first draft of the Allocation Token EPP Extension ( http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-gould-allocation-token-00 ) has been submitted to the IETF.  I co-authored this draft with Sharon Wodjenski and Trung Tran from Neustar to support the definition of an allocation token for allocating an object like a domain name.  In one use case, the token can be used to support the releasing of reserved names via an external auction provider, where the domain names and tokens are provided to the auction provider, and the winning registrant of the auction will receive the token to pass through the registrar to the registry to allocate a domain name using a transform command like create, update, or transfer.  Another use case is to use the token to authorize the allocation of domain names in a founder’s program.  Other alternatives like leveraging the authinfo or leveraging one of the key, value pair extensions were considered, but we felt that having an explicit allocation token to authorize the allocation of an object was the cleanest approach.

Please review the draft and provide any feedback.
