Why does a parent name need to be wrapped for creating subnames?

Wrapping a parent name is an essential step to make it 'submintable'. This process involves upgrading your ENS name to a new format that supports the creation and management of subnames.

Wrapping essentially turns your ENS name into a smart contract, providing the flexibility to issue and govern subnames. This step is crucial for ensuring that subnames are fully integrated into the ENS ecosystem, allowing for seamless interaction and management within the decentralized web.

Remember, once your parent name is wrapped, you gain the ability to create and administer subnames, expanding your presence and utility within the ENS framework.
