Organizations operating registries, per the policies of the region 
and for resources delegated to them, doesn't seem to have triggered
the risks listed in ICP-2....  (well, perhaps some limited confusion 
when one looks for records in Whois and then realize that the ISP 
has an Rwhois service instead, but that's understandable)

Would that be the case with registries operating free of ARIN policy, 
as you envision under ARIN-prop-136? Are such registries(/registrars?)
going to follow directory services policies 3.2, 3.3, or 3.6?
