    I'm currently not using OpenSRS for .DE domains, but the procedure of sending written cancelation forms in order to delete a .DE domain is a step backwards. Maybe you want to consider putting .DE Domains in Transit that have been set to let-expire. Also the .DE registry plans to introduce a RESTORE command and a cool down phase after deletion. Maybe that is a chance to streamline the process with the gTLD lifecycle.
