If they won't communicate then what's the point of publishing any sort
of address? At least if there is no address published, you will know
right away that communication will be a problem and that you need to
find some intermediary like an upstream AS, for instance.

Now that is far more productive than a whois directory full of garbage.

Down with whois steganography! No more haystack on our needles!
