Did you, by chance, read the sentence where David said:

   My position is if I provide valid technical and 
   abuse contac for an address space, the specific end- 
   entity it is in use by and their physical address is
   irrelevant.

Is it bad for David to take full responsibility for traffic
emanating from his address space?

I agree. SWIP (Shared WHOIS Information Project) is broken.
WHOIS itself is broken. RWHOIS (Remote WHOIS) is broken.
In the past, I have proposed a step to fix this problem
but I see no proposal from you.
