For the folks who aren't aware, there is working being done on a proposal
for a complete do-over of WHOIS:
I don't believe this work address the regional registry information, which
is what initiated the discussion, but this conversation has crossed over
into the domain names, too.

My mail servers are just fine. My abuse department is standing by to
serve your requests. They are listed on all domains, ip allocations,
and abuse.org, etc, etc..
If you suggest folks attempt to reach an abuse contact, fail, and them
spam. Ok. No problem. But starting out with receiving an email that
is CC'd to 3 departments, 2 direct people, and the same for all other
org's involved is offensive, abusive, etc. And if you suggest for a
second someone attempted to call, and gave up, and then spammed; yeah
that never happened. A phone call? Really? Maybe one a decade, versus
many spammed-spam complaints a day.

Well. If it's not happening that often, then lets fix it now before it
> I actually think it's important to have contact information publicly
Why? Who outside 'the business' needs that level of detailed contact
information to IP mgmt folks?
Does an end-user need that access? No.
Does a web hoster need that access? No. They can go through their ISP
or contact my OPS contact.
Do you need that access? Do you have an AS, and IP blocks? If so then
sure, why not.
Now there is a big bug in locking down access to those registered
members. Registered with whom? Arin? Ok so how do my brit friends
whois my IP contact info? That complicates things, beyond suggesting an
Arin policy. So I don't ever see this as changing, as I think I said,
but it should change. Just like we shouldn't have echo/chargen
anymore. They were cool 'back in the day'.
