Fair enough. But then, taking your point further, if the current model 
has worked for 20 years by exposing the Registry and Registrar versions 
of the expiration date in their respective WHOIS services, what changed 
recently that merits introducing a change where we’re trying to sync 
two fields in a way that we know won’t be reliable / effective and 
that has the potential to cause further confusion to the registrants?

Perhaps this has the potential to further the time window in which 
registrars selling these “back orders” can make business.
