We did discuss the issue and I personally believed that there was not a 
substantial issue here to consider.  I agree that the text of the policy 
probably could have been written better to be clearer.  

I do not understand how you feel that the following showing up in whois is a 
privacy concern.

Private Customer
Private Address
Seattle, WA 98102

I believe this was the intent of the policy.  If you and/or others feel that 
this was not the intent then we need a new policy to clarify this by using the 
exact fields and the exact text that should appear for residential customers.
