release from Iron Mountain says that ICANN has now formally chosen
them as the escrow agent for the Registrar Data Escrow program. So now,
only six and a half short years and one highly public registrar collapse
after the mandatory escrow was put into the registrar agreement, ICANN
has finally gotten around to setting it up.
The next question is whether the registrars will actually make the
escrow deposits, and what if anything will ICANN do when they don't.
The big responsible registrars will, of course, but the marginal ones
most likely not to escrow are the ones most likely to collapse. Stay
tuned for the next exciting chapter.
