This is all fine and good if the address assignee is ready
willing and able to act when receiving communications about
network-related issues, but for the vast majority of assignees
who have no inhouse networking expertise, it makes more sense
to have their network provider's contact information there.
There is still a way to contact the assignee since the
network operator, who has a business relationship with the
assignee, can relay messages or trade contact info between
the contacter and contactee.

The only information that should be transparent and open is
information that we NEED TO KNOW.
