The Chairs are presuming Scott is still willing to do this.  As those errata will be reviewed by this working group the Chairs will not be prescriptive as to what he should propose believing Scott is well-versed in the issue and will make an appropriate proposal for review by all of us.

The Chairs are asking the editors of those documents to make any changes they need to make as a result of this consensus and continue moving their documents forward from there, including making a request for working group last call if that is appropriate.

I hereby make a WGLC request for rdap-reverse-search document.
