I will agree with what you are saying insofar as that you should be able to act as PoC for your customer so long as you will be reachable and capable of doing something about issues in a reasonable time.
If you are no more than a reseller who has no technical responsibility for the customers' network then I disagree.
The problem I have is that when there is a serious and immediate problem that resolution of the problem can be delayed greatly if I have to contact a third order representative who then has to contact a second order representative who then has to contact the end user. It can be days or weeks before I am able to wend through the maze of contacts.
I maintain that at a minimum the abuse contact should be a real person who has the power and authority to resolve network issues, not just someone who knows someone who knows how to contact someone who can get hold of the admin.
I would go so far as to say that company information could be anonymized so long as the abuse PoC is a live and responsive and authoritative contact.
If you are managing the network for your customer then are you not in reality the proper PoC?
I also think this should be an option at the end customers' direction. They, not you, should make the determination of what PoC information is entered. Can they not already designate you as their agent?
I have as my customers companies who are technically illiterate and who properly and appropriately contract out their network operations to a single local tech house. IMHO that tech house should be the abuse PoC for all of those companies.
I don't care who the IP address is assigned to. I do care who the tech admin is that is assigned to the IP address.
