Is WHOIS going to go away?

GDPR only has jurisdiction over individuals who are citizens of
countries which are members of the EU. About 27 countries out of
almost 200 in this world. And companies which manage that data and are
also within the EU's jurisdiction.

But that jurisdiction arises from an individual's EU nation
citizenship.

So why not just have a checkmark at domain registration which asks
whether you believe yourself to be within the EU's jurisdiction and,
if so, no WHOIS publication for you, or very limited.
