                 draft-ietf-weirds-object-inventory-00

Abstract

   WHOIS output elements from 124 TLDs were collected and analyzed.
   This document describes the statistical analysis process and result
   of WHOIS information.  The purpose of this document is to build an
   object inventory to facilitate discussions of domain name data
   objects in WHOIS response.
