This is not what I've written or maybe I was not clear.
I was just saying that if the XML/CSV schema allows (without making it
mandatory) to convey grace periods information, then it is better,
because people are then free to choose to use that option or not.
If the option is not available, then there is no choice (yeah, obvious).

But at the end of the day, it is not a big deal.

This is orthogonal for me. Imagine a registry where domain names are
free. You may still need autoRenew periods and deletion grace periods…

This is policy considerations. I was just saying that if the technical
protocol allows this option (one option among others) then it is better.
Other layers would decide if this technical option is put to use or not.

Like the 45 days autoRenew period ?
You think EBERO switches would take more than 45 days ?
