Thank you, Niels, Scott, Eliot, Adam, Andrew and Peter for bringing this
up and discussing this issue.

In this particular case, in addition to RFC 2026, we should also look at
RFC 3735, 'Guidelines for Extending the Extensible Provisioning Protocol
(EPP)', authored by Scott. It briefly discusses some criteria for which
track to choose for different EPP extensions. Most pertinently, it notes
that:

"the intended maturity level (informational, proposed standard, etc.)
largely depends on what is being extended and the amount of general
interest in the extension." [1]

Additionally, it says:

“Extensions need not be published as Internet-Draft or RFC documents if
they are intended for operation in a closed environment or are otherwise
intended for a limited audience. In such cases extensions MAY be
documented in a file and structural format that is appropriate for the
intended audience.”[1]

So, demonstration of utility and interest is an important aspect here
(first for whether it should be an I-D/RFC; and if yes, with what
status: informational/standard).

Thank you.
Gurshabad
