OK... I'll nibble. 

I don't think you get this more than anyone else because
of your stance.   But perhaps that will change now that
you've publically declared your resistance.  ;-)

It's incredibly important that there be accurate
contact information for a domain.  If you don't want to
list any one person, for a particular role, you may opt
to use role accounts.  Unless I've misread and
misunderstood the policy, neither the contacts nor the
registrant need be a natural person.  Contacts can be
role accounts and the registrant can certainly be a
legal entity instead of an individual.

Additionally, if you have privacy concerns (which I can
certainly understand and respect), many Registrars offer 
proxy contact options for a nominal fee.
