I agree with Dana's added language about maintenance windows, and with what 
some others have proposed to make the language less specific to RWhois and 
more generically to locally maintained dbs used in place of WHOIS. We 
should have all caught this after Leslie's presentation on CRISP and IRIS. 
These may still be some way off, but some version of them will arrive.

Einar raises a good point that the requirements for privacy should match 
those of WHOIS, not create an entirely new set of standards. This also fits 
with the idea that this proposal should cover a more generic set of dbs 
than simply RWhois.
