Why on earth would we go the expense of implementing this if it’s: 
- temporary
- we can’t use proper ACLs etc., due to gaps in the ICANN policy

>In section 2.3 of v12 we say that registrars MUST offer RDAP service for all "thin registrations” that they sponsor. There appears to be no benefit in requiring registrars to offer RDAP service for a thick registration.
>Please note that the requirements is regarding individual registrations as opposed to TLD-wise. We included a definition for “thin registration”.
