The server would advertise the namespace of the extension in an <extURI>
element in the <svcExtension> section. It would not appear in an
<objURI> element.

As the draft is currently defined, the namespace should be in <extURI> to reflect the protocol extension of the command and be in <objURI> to reflect the object extension of the poll message.

Hi Rik,

From a personal perspective I agree with Gavin: Yuck!  However the
question is what the goal of this draft is:

- Document the existing implementation for registration in EPP IANA
registry? Then you can do whatever you like, get an expert review and
leave the document as you wish

- Ask for WG-adoption and go for Standards Track; Ai, you might end up
in the same situation as the keyrelay draft where there was a status quo
on how to continue with the XML structure. In the end there were four
people expressing their opinion on this matter and I decided to follow
that advice, beside my own personal preference.

Can you tell us what your plans are for this draft?

There are currently no existing implementations, and I am not especially
interested in going for WG adoption. I wrote the extension to address a
relatively common support request we get from clients (to reverse an
erroneous renewal), and submitted it to the list for feedback.

We will probably implement the extension in our server at some point
once the specification has stabilised following feedback.

One other question: How does the server hello message look like with
respect to this extension?

The server would advertise the namespace of the extension in an <extURI>
element in the <svcExtension> section. It would not appear in an
<objURI> element.
