Danny and all,

All execellent points here.  But not likely what Mr.
Dierker wanted to hear/read.  

  It is interesting and foolish that "Registrars" were

It's foolish as the Data Retention Act does require ALL
service providers, to include Registrars, to retain such 
data for no less than 3 years.
