Andy, when a registrar fails, ICANN gathers all possible data to protect 
registrants. More details about those efforts are published in ICANN's 
De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure, which is posted at:

Hi Marika,

When an ex-Registrar's customer database is passed on to the gaining
Registrar, do you just hand the whole thing over, or do you strip out
the data belonging to old customers who no longer have names registered?

I ask this because when databases were handed over to Directi in the
past, it appeared that they then used that information to spam old
customers of the ex-Registrar.

That's not good.
