I agree with this approach.

If we all think that whois needs to be updated and this can't be
done without a contract, could a contract specific to whois
maintenance be written as Jeff outlined without the things that
legacy holders are clearly concerned about in the current LRSA?

LRSA-lite could be a lot easier for legacy holders to swallow.
As v4 runout gets closer, I worry about increased hijacking.
The value of database maintenance will then be clear to everyone.
