I disagree. The administrative POC is every bit as important as the
technical POC. It should terminate with someone qualified and
authorized to accept legal notice on behalf of the individual or
organization holding the addresses.

Part of setting up a lawful false front involves hiring or contracting
such an agent. That agent has duties for which he is liable under
statute and common law... and he charges you for performing them.
Those duties go beyond the lackadaisical response ISPs provide when
someone seeks to serve one of their residential customers.
