What's your view of the following clause in ICM's
Appendix S?

"Registrars will be required to participate in the
operation of a cross-registry WHOIS database, which
will provide searching capabilities and access to all
information concerning domain name registrations
regardless of which TLD the domain name is
registered in or which registrar processed the domain
name application."

Who is providing this cross-registry database?  Is
this an ICANN project or an ICM initiative? 
Presumably this is something different than VeriSign's
Centralized WHOIS.
