[consult] Call for Consultation - Suggestion to Remove the WHOIS Query Result Limit

What kinds of numbers are we looking at?

I mean, like, of all the "meaningful" queries, what would return the 
most?  How many would be over 1000?  When I say "meaningful" I am 
subjectively insinuating we don't care to honor data mining queries. 
(O *)

There are only two reasons to limit the number. Budget for servers 
and bandwith is one, the other is data mining.  It's hard to know 
what makes sense without more detail on why 256 is a problem and 
whether it should be, say, doubled or more.

Sarcasm doesn't scale.
