This is simply not true.

The European registries have made it clear that copmpliance with the EU =
privacy directive, i.e. compliance with the law is a higher priority.

VeriSign has made it clear that the efficiency of the protocol, in =
particular the data volumes required is a higher priority.

In any case the way to achieve stability would be to accept maximal =
requirements rather than minimal. We have had an ostrich posture =
specification proposed for ten years with no sign of deployment.
