Wrapped States

Taking the Name Wrapper into account, an PNS name can be in one of these possible states:

Unregistered: The name has not even been registered/created yet, or it has expired.

Unwrapped: The name exists and has not expired (in the case of .pls second-level names). The Name Wrapper contract does not have ownership over the name. You own the name in the registry and/or .pls registrar.

Wrapped: The Name Wrapper contract has ownership of the name (in the registry/registrar). You are issued an ERC-1155 NFT in return, which proves that you are the actual owner. You can unwrap the name at any time, which burns the ERC-1155 NFT, and returns ownership in the registry/registrar back to you. If your name is a subname like sub.name.pls, then the owner of name.pls can technically replace the subname and transfer it to a different owner. In addition, the parent owner can burn parent-controlled fuses on your name.

Emancipated: The owner of the parent name is no longer able to replace this name, or burn any additional fuses on it. All .pls second-level names (like name.pls) are automatically put into the Emancipated state when they are wrapped. The name can still be unwrapped and rewrapped by the owner.

Locked: The name can no longer be unwrapped. The owner can now burn owner-controlled fuses on the name. Fuses for subnames of this name can now be burned as well.
