Some general questions about this draft:
1 - Has anybody implemented it ?
Yes, we have implemented it (as of ID-version 05). VeriSign, too. I've
heard there is at least another implementation.
2 - If so, do test servers exist for client developers ?
I can't provide (yet) with a link from us. VeriSign's got an open source
Both, IRISserv and FlowerBed include an LWZ-transport implementation, the
latter being more current, I think.
4 - Could a server just offer a whois interface and be done
with it ?
I don't understand this question.
Example A.1 contains elements <salt> and <md5>, what is this ?
The parent element (<bag>) is explained in RFC3981, the contents of the
parent are not defined by IRIS. Read section 4.4 of that RFC for
