Hi all,

I've just uploaded an I-D for a new EPP extension. From the Introduction:

   The Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) provides a way for clients
   to create and update objects in a central repository.  Usually, the
   commands that a client sends to a server will have been initiated
   upon request of a human being.  As a result, occasionally a command
   is sent which contains an error. [...] The extension described in this
   document attempts to provide an additional remedy for [cases where
   the existing EPP command repertoire cannot be used] by providing a
   way for a client to request that a previous command be reversed.  In
   order to reverse a command, the client need only record the
   <svTRID> returned by the server in its response to the command.

Before starting work on this extension, I looked around to see if there
was anything similar already out there. Nominet have an extension which
allows clients to cancel <renew> commands[1] but I wasn't able to find
anything that implemented a general purpose "undo".

One thing on the roadmap is to add clarity about what should happen if
the client tries to <reverse> a command that is still pending (ie the
original command got a 1001 response). Otherwise I think most of the
bases have been covered.

Comments and suggestions welcome as always!
