Re: New Internet Draft on registering IDNs
A followup on my own message, because I believe what I said was wrong. I said:
Either the system is automatic (no human intervention) and can
create many unnecessary alternatives, or it is human-controlled and
That's too simplistic. Human-controlled systems that decide what is
and is not a variant are error-prone, but human-controlled systems
that decide which labels from an automatically-created bundle are
not. This ties into Vint's suggestion the other day about
non-automatic partitioning the labels in the bundle between allocated
and blocked. In this scenario, the registry can say many different
things, such as "your bundle contains 1024 entries, and..."
- you can choose which five to put in the zone; the other 1019 will be blocked
- we have chosen the five that we will put in the zone, and the 1019
that will be blocked
- you can put as many as you want in the zone, and it will cost you
US$10 per name per year to do so; the rest will be blocked for free
- because your bundle has 1024 names, the base bundle cost is five
times higher than if you had chosen a name that only had 128 names;
plus, you must pay...
... and so on.
I will cover this additional scenario in my next draft.
More comments on this are welcome!
