I just wanted to clarify a couple of things that have surfaced in the discussion.
The “Registrar Registration Expiration Date” is **not** being proposed in draft-lozano-ietf-eppext-registrar-expiration-date. The field is already in gTLD Registrar's Whois and has been there for more than two years and registrars use it as described by Pat, Thomas and others in this thread. Please see the 2013 RAA RDDS spec at https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/approved-with-specs-2013-09-17-en#whois.
The draft is simply a proposal to fill the vacuum to pass this field from registrars to registries per the Thick Whois policy recommendation that is in the process to finalize its policy language. If you have concerns about the proposed language in the draft policy, please participate in the currently open public comment period at https://www.icann.org/public-comments/rdds-output-2015-12-03-en. The public comment period ends in about a week on 31-Jan.
