I think many organizations would prefer to not receive service of
legal process at any address.
The org address listed in WHOIS should be a mailing address that is an
authoritative contact for both the organization and the network.
Example uses of a mailing address could include:
(*) Verification of of identity on the part of upstreams and
prospective peers, by proof of ability to receive mail, or comparison
to other records.
(*) Contact by letter sent via postal mail or private courier as a
last resort, for reporting technical or abuse issues, that for some
reason the e-mail based or telephone contact was not responsive for,
for example, the telephone may be malfunctioning, or disconnected,
and someone forgot to update WHOIS.
(*) Reporting of network abuse issues, by going there in person to
report face-to-face or via courier/postal mail, where the technical
contact was believed to be complicit in the abuse for some reason.
(*) Reporting of possible hacker compromises impacting the mail
server that the technical contact's mail is hosting on, or when
e-mail is otherwise returned as undeliverable or not acknowledged.
