[gtld-tech] EPDP recommendations and EPP

The EPDP final report says that, if a domain name has a technical
contact (whose information is different from the registrant's), the only
data that registrars should send to registries are the technical
contact's name, email address, and phone number (if any).
Assuming that technical contacts should still be created and managed as
RFC 5733 contact objects, and also assuming that this recommendation is
adopted without change, it poses a challenge, because the RFC requires
all contact objects to have <city> and <cc> elements.
I've been thinking about how this could be resolved, here are some ideas
(in descending order of nastiness):
* write a new RFC which updates RFC 5733 to make the <city> and <cc>
* write a new EPP extension which makes the technical contact's name,
email address, and phone number directly attributes of the the domain
name rather than a contact object
* define a "convention" that allows the <city> and <cc> elements to
contain placeholder values, such as: <city>-</city> and <cc>XX</cc>
which pose no data protection issues.
