I would just like to gather some feedback whether this would be a worthwhile CIP or not.
As many of you will be aware there is a pool with ticker IOHK which has recently increased their pool margin from 2% -> 100%. (I would prefer if we didn’t discuss whether this pool was a scam etc, just using it for illustration purposes)
This lead to a delegator essentially asking me how this was possible and it got me thinking, when a pool increases their margin, should the effect period be increased from n+1 epochs to a longer period of time? I appreciate there is not magic bullet here and that we are only talking about rewards and there is no harm to there staked amount.
But worst case scenario we are expected delegators to be aware and change pools within 5 days. I can personally see many scenarios where a delegator might not check up that often ie if they were on holiday.
I do not see as big an issue for margin decreases (however there is a case potentially if a delegator didnt want too many rewards, perhaps tax reasons?) or for pool retirements as I personally feel these scenarios are less likely to occur with malice intent.
Thank you in advance
