I support this proposal as written.

I view it more as a customer "opt-in" to SWIP/RWHOIS which is IMNSHO far 
preferable to "opt-out".

"Opt-out" = "We will spam you back to the stone age until you beg us to 
stop, and we will sell your identity to others who will do likewise."

"Opt-in" = "We won't annoy you or disclose your identity unless we have 
your specific (and revokable) permission to do so."
