I'm trying not to propose any changes to whois/SWIP/privacy policy, as 
that is an entirely different can of worms.  Owen has already mentioned 
that he thinks we need to change existing IPv6 whois/SWIP/privacy 
policy.  Perhaps this new thread would be a good opportunity to discuss 
ideas about how to do so?  To get the discussion started, here are the 
IPv4 and IPv6 sections of the existing NRPM:
