WG] I'm hard-pressed to come up with a case where packets stop flowing or
flow to the wrong party because whois is down. *Maybe* you can make that
case for reverse DNS since lots of anti-spam/anti-spoof relies on
forward/reverse DNS agreement, but that doesn't affect routing. RPKI ups
the ante considerably. I believe ARIN when they say that the liability
risks are higher for this.
