Actually, I think the best place to have this particular conversation is
arin-tech-discuss. ARIN engineering hangs out there and does respond. I'm
not sure if all of NANOG wants to hear about the various behaviors of
different whois clients dealing with different whois servers around the
globe. If you are interested in the more global whois directory service
problem, there is emerging work going on in the IETF to tackle the
directory service problem called WEIRDS.
