The procedures for providing access, and the specification of the content and format of this data, will be as stated below, until changed according to the Registry Agreement. This Appendix is subject to change by agreement of Registry Operator and ICANN during the design process as well as during the IETF standards process. In addition, Registry Operator agrees to implement changes to this Appendix specified by ICANN to conform to the IETF provreg working group's protocol specification no later than 135 days after the IETF specification is adopted as a Proposed Standard [RFC 2026, section 4.1.1]. Registry Operator agrees to implement changes to this Appendix as may be specified by ICANN to conform to the IETF crisp working group’s protocol specification no later than 180 days after the IETF specification is adopted as a Proposed Standard. Accordingly, the following represents the target architecture and initial functionality.
