When I was on our wg looking into this; the only real concern I saw was Law 
enforcement, and a lady from RCMP and some fellow from Interpol, convinced me 
it was not a big deal for them.  They kind a leaned toward privacy, a warrant 
was no biggie and snooping was easy.
So the only redeeming (not really at all) value of this stuff goes to the IP 
dudettes and dudes.  And I never did get that deal where the IP bar was only on 
the side of big business, seems like the bar should cover both sides ----  oh 
yea that would be stupid $$$$$ wise.

That's a common problem nowadays - independent studies ordered by
dependent parties.

It seems to me that those who are most demanding of this, the
intellectual property 
protection bar (of which I am a dues paying member), ought to pay for

Those whose privacy is being busted by DNS whois ought not to be forced
to pay for a study 
that has as its ultimate goal a further reduction in their privacy
