I agree with Theo; my understanding was that RDAP profile was a Registry requirement also, not a registrar requirement.

Hi Francisco,

 From my understanding on the call this RDAP profile is a Registry requirement right? Least that was the key take away for me from the last session this week.

Thank you,
