  Registrar, or Registrant  data into a portable and verifiable
  format.

The cited memo was the basis for the present whois format for .com and .net gTLDs in 2001. It is presently outdated, as the memo refers to RRP statuses. In 2006, Verisign passed to EPP for the management of its gTLDs. This memo is cited in the spamwiki for historical reference and to share a better understanding of why the whois for these gTLDs is in the current format.
