  1. Summary of the Problem Being Addressed by this Policy Proposal

    Loosening of restriction to DNS-root server operators for IPv4 PI policy, critical infrastructure criteria, in order to also include ccTLD and possibly significant SLDs.


  2. Summary of How this Proposal Addresses the Problem

    Remove restrictive wording


  3. Proposal

    3.1) I propose to replace the definition at the end of the document::
    "Core DNS service provider: A core DNS service provider is a company who provides DNS service for the root level of the DNS tree (ICANN-sanctioned root operators)."


    "Core DNS service provider: A core DNS service provider is an organisation based in the AfriNIC Service Region that provides DNS service for any TLD.

  • Up to two (2) assignments can be made for any TLD service.
  • Assignments are also made to support deployment of infrastructure supporting ICANN-sanctioned root operators."

3.2) I assume and understand this has always been the intention, I just believe the current wording is too restrictive.
