Perhaps some people would complain that "best" should be prefixed >to "current practice", but I'm not one of those people :-) Not to borrow too much from RIPE's (dis)functional distant cousin, IETF, but it would generally make sense to have a WG enumerate, through consensus, what the relevant "current practice" is before declaring, as a WG, what the "best current practice" is. If of course that's something the WG wishes to address. DNS timeouts might be the wrong topic. How within the RIPE community you address the issue of TLD's dropping off the internet transiently, from odd-numbered counties within the UK, like .to did last night, might be relevant.
