We should not conflate *implementation* of the policy and *success*
of the policy.  Reviewing registrars' practices yields data on
compliance; that's important for policy enforcement.

Polling registrants could yield data on the policy's actual
effectiveness, and provides important feed-back to the GNSO: Has the
policy, once implemented, *actually* achieved its stated purpose?

If you guys don't want to go so far as to actually recommend polling
registrants, then I'd suggest to remove any specifics from the
success metric part, and just leave things at this:

        Success Metric: Significant increase of registrant awareness
        of WHOIS.
