Re: Character Variant Deployment at VeriSign

Hello, Pat

Two ways to decide the language tags, I think.
One is by the registrant, and another one is by the registry/registrar

Actually it is very dangerous to allow language tag to have value of null.
because it will cause despute in the future.
In some cases, it should be forces to choose a tag for registrar or

As to gTLD, it is a little bit difficult to let registrant choose tag,
but it is resonable to assign affirmative language tag for registrars of gTLD.
