Section 3.2.5 says:

   -  A <domain:registrant> element that contains the identifier for the
      human or organizational social information (contact) object to be
      associated with the domain object as the object registrant.  This
      object identifier MUST be known to the server before the contact
      object can be associated with the domain object.  An empty element
      can be used to remove registrant information.

   -  A <domain:authInfo> element that contains authorization
      information associated with the domain object.  This mapping
      includes a password-based authentication mechanism, but the schema
      allows new mechanisms to be defined in new schemas.  A <domain:
      null> element can be used within the <domain:authInfo> element to
      remove authorization information.

It should say:

   -  An OPTIONAL <domain:registrant> element that contains the
      identifier for the human or organizational social information
      (contact) object to be associated with the domain object as the
      object registrant.  This object identifier MUST be known to the
      server before the contact object can be associated with the domain
      object.  An empty element can be used to remove registrant
      information.

   -  An OPTIONAL <domain:authInfo> element that contains authorization
      information associated with the domain object.  This mapping
      includes a password-based authentication mechanism, but the schema
      allows new mechanisms to be defined in new schemas.  A <domain:
      null> element can be used within the <domain:authInfo> element to
      remove authorization information.

Notes:

The registrant and authinfo parameters are both optional according to the XML Schema specification.
But the text of the 3.2.5 is currently ambiguous (IMHO), and may lead to think both parameters are mandatory.
