By nature of their business,  telcos have their customers'  phone lines and
their information automatically and physically matched. We are at the
registrants' mercy to provide the information.

This is not my point Joyce. My point is that if a customer moves before the next phone book is published, the data in thact phonebook is factualy incorrect until the next one is published. Whois is very similar in this respect.

I do not think that it is reasonable to expect any compilation of data to be 100% accurate and precise 100% of the time. In fact, I believe that the measures currently being implemented may be enough to appropriately address the problem. We should take some time to measure the effectiveness of these programs before we trot down the road of creating more new policy.
