It seems gTLDs are facing the same issue, and the same seems to be the same: an I-D defining those values.

The gTLD RDAP Profile only applies to gTLDs. ccTLDs don't have follow any of ICANN's specs in this regard; is there any IETF document precluding .it from using some kind of internal ID ?

Empty data might seem to solve it as well, but I wonder whether this requirement also came from gTLD profile or from a technical standard ? 

> Maybe these problems are common to other ccTLDs.

ccTLDs are known for liking their independence, so it's really up to you to make the .it RDAP profile... but there are some commonalities in the EEE (European Economic Area) that might suggest an European ccTLD RDAP profile that could include VAT, Privacy Laws etc. Perhaps CENTR could be a venue to that development ?
