Well a rwhois(client) call to nii.isi.edu done thusly,
rwhois -h nii.isi.edu:43 fp.k12.wa.us
Referral Whois (RWhois) spec version 1.0 (InterNIC V-1.0BETA4)
Connecting to [nii.isi.edu] port  -> command line server
RWhois Server at nii-server.isi.edu version V-1.0:
Connecting to [rwhois.internic.net] port  Punt referral to higher authority
Connecting to [rwhois] port  Punt referral to higher authority
<ERROR> Can't find host 'rwhois'.
Punt to higher authority , Hunh.... !
It seems they don't supply whois info for areas below the us. ?
Os is it more on the line that they delegate to 'someone' but
then don't supply who someone is thru whois ?
