I have proposed many times to just move domain WHOIS data into a new
RRTYPE and let whoever owns the domain put in that whatever they want,
including (and perhaps most usefully for many) just a URL for further

Obviously registries/registrars/ICANN can require and maintain more
specific and validatable information from domain owners.

I only mean the publicly accessible WHOIS info.

It was a reaction to the whole GDPR foofraw: Let each domain owner
control their own publicly visible data with some default (like we see
now) initialized by registrars on purchase via a new RRTYPE perhaps
call it WHOIS tho there are some which might be reused for this
purpose, TBD.
