Technical Summary This document describes methods for handling Unicode strings representing memorable, human-friendly names (called "nicknames", "display names", or "petnames") for people, devices, accounts, websites, and other entities. This document obsoletes RFC 7700. Working Group Summary This document is part of a set of revised RFCs (7564, 7613, 7700), based on implementation experience. 7564 is the base Precis protocol, 7613 and 7700 are profiles for specific use (username/passwords and nicknames respectively). This revised document, the Precis profile for nickname, essentially clarifies the original specification and make it synchronized with the revised base spec, specially regarding case mapping. Multiple versions of the revised spec was discussed over more than a year in the working group mailing list. As a clarification of the original profile specification, there was no real contention on the document. A discussion happened on a desirable property of being idempotent, but the discussion went that this is a desirable property, not an absolute requirement. Document Quality This version is based on implementor's feedback on RFC 7700. Personnel The document shepherd is Marc Blanchet. The responsible Area Director is Alexey Melnikov.
