How does moving some WHOIS data into an internal database better serve
ARIN's community?  The details of allocations should be as transparent as
reasonably possible, and the level of information in WHOIS at present is
sufficient except that it lacks verification - which is a different issue.

The idea that an organization should opt out of listing any contact
addresses because they aren't willing to communicate regarding problems
with their netblock seems quite counterproductive.
