[kjk] Apples and Oranges..  I have no direct need to find your home address
because of interaction on the roads.  Legislation has been passed to
restrict my access to your personal information via your license number.

Get similar legislation passed as respects IP addresses and the same will be
true in the country the legislation is based in.

Taxi and bus services that do provide a public exchange service are in fact
required to display their contact information in human readable form.  This
is a more valid comparison.
