1.  Introduction

   Querying and retrieving registration data from registries are defined
   in the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) [I-D.ietf-weirds-rdap
   -query][I-D.ietf-weirds-using-http][I-D.ietf-weirds-json-response].
   These documents do not specify where to send the queries.  This
   document specifies a method to find which server is authoritative to
   answer queries for the requested scope.

   The proposed mechanism is based on the fact that allocation data for
   domain names and IP addresses are maintained by IANA, are publicly
   available and are in a structured format.  The mechanism assumes some
   data structure within these registries.  This document requests IANA
   to create these registries for the specific purpose of RDAP use,
