To be truthful I had forgotten this difference between Whois-RWS and Reg-RWS. But to our knowledge, yes this has already been the case. We had our QA department double check it.

However, our Reg-RWS documentation says it will be returned without zero padding. So this is our mistake. Sorry for the inconvenience.
