One can make a guess that maybe somebody is waiting for whois data to be
to be merged in ARIN db after which all blocks would show up proper ORG 
abuse and tech contacts automaticly...

But that does not excuse the fact that old abuse address is not being
taken care of when its no more complex to setup email forwarding from
abuse at wiltel.com to abuse at level3.com then it is to setup redirect
from www.wiltel.com to www.level3.com
