    memo is unlimited.

The work in the IETF has been on EPP, and it was done in the usual
IETF open working group; it is currently at proposed standard.
There is some discussion of taking it Draft Standard at this point,
and if you know of problems with EPP that mean it should
be changed and re-cycle at proposed, now would be a good time
to bring them up.  The original working group mailing list,
ietf-provreg at, is still open for discussions of this
