Hi Scott,

thanks a lot for your feddback.

Please find my comments to your feedback below.

> draft-ietf-regext-rdap-reverse-search currently states that "This document has no actions for IANA".  I believe that's primarily because there's nothing new or different being returned in the search results, which is where RDAP servers describe the features they support.
Exactly.

I agree.

Furthermore, my opinion is that Section 4.1 of RFC7483bis should be 
updated to treat this use case. I mean, a server should signal in 
rdapConformance not only the extensions used in building the response 
but all the supported features.

Best,

Mario
