This is much like what ID Protect and similar services already do.
Instead of a web page, its email addresses that are rotated (they change
periodically such as every week so that spammers have more difficulty in
harvesting them) whereby the messages are forwarded to the registrant's
email address.  This idea would have the drawback that email is not used as
the input-message mechanism (a web page is used instead), but has the
benefit that messages cannot be sent by spammers because there would not
exist an email input (if I have it right).
The proxy services also do it (forward messages) for postal mail and phone

What I intended: registrants could chose not to have their details on
display in whois, but in stead allow messages (e.g.  over a webpage of
the registrar) to be send to them. This is no interception (that would
technically be difficult to organize since the mail for the registrant
will often not be provided by the registrar).
