Do you think the community needs to know the details of every user of the IP address space, or do they just need to know the contact information of those that are responsible for its use?

Since you brought it up, let's talk real estate. Do you own a house?
If you do and I know your address then I know who you are and I know
how much you paid for the house because your identity and quite a bit
of information about you is published in the public tax records.

Go ahead and try it with the address in my sig:

As with land, the public has a bona fide interest in knowing who is
using IP addresses in more than a transient way.
