1.  Introduction

   This document specifies an extension to the Registration Data Access
   Protocol (RDAP) that allows RDAP servers to use JSContact
   ([draft-ietf-jmap-jscontact]) to represent the contact information
   associated with entities in RDAP responses, instead of jCard
   ([RFC7095]).  It also describes the process by which an RDAP server
   can transition from jCard to JSContact.  RDAP query and response
   extensions are defined to facilitate the transition process.
