I was going to remain neutral on this policy proposal.  on one
hand I like standardized disclosure.  On the other hand I do not
like removing the onus to register anyone, even a residential
user, in WHOIS.

However after seeing Dillon's comment I am going to come out
SOLIDLY IN FAVOR of this policy proposal if for no other reason
than to counteract his no vote.

In the future perhaps it might occur to certain people that if they
don't have time to read and understand certain policy proposal changes
that they lack the knowledge to make good policy decisions on them, and
should just say nothing and let the folks who do understand a
particular proposal to comment on it.
