I was talking about DNS Whois. One must be very careful indeed to keep
the conversations about DNS and IP address whois distinct. 

As I think my other posts have made clear, it is perfectly appropriate
for address Whois records to identify the assignee who occupies the
resources, especially when this has operational implications regarding
routing, address hijacking, etc. 

And as McTim's post made clear, one has to be careful to segregate the
true operational needs from other kinds of needs that might be loaded on
to a Whois system.
