My understanding is that this is the status quo is that an Internal
Server Name stops being an Internal Server Name (and therefore triggers
the cert revocation clock) when the TLD concerned is _contracted_. I get
that from 11.1.4 of BR 1.1.6:
"Within 30 days after ICANN has approved a new gTLD for operation, as
evidenced by publication of a contract with the gTLD operator on
The deferred ballot wishes to change "contracted" to "delegated".
So, my proposed wording is to try and make the new definition of ISN
match the former - i.e. something stops being an ISN at contract signing
rather than at delegation.
Was my wording bad? Or have I misunderstood the status quo? Or something
