This doctrine bears no relationship to actual law regarding privacy and freedom of association. Sorry, guys, but there's more at stake here than your convenience as network admins, and even as network admins there are appropriate limits to place on indiscriminate public access to sensitive information, especially when contractually agreed between provider and customer. When you get elected as a legislator, Kevin, then you and 250 other elected reps can change that under due process if you wish; until then, don't try to make law via ARIN.
