What are people worried about that they feel their POC information should be "private"??  

	1.	A little spam?!?  I get so little spam on my POC email addresses, it's silly to worry about it!  
	2.	What else?  Privacy??  Businesses (legitimate ones, anyway) have no reason to hide themselves! 

<kjk>  One other point I wanted to make here going further on point #2 - Businesses using a *shared* resource such as the *shared* public internet not only have no reason to hide themselves, they have an obligation to be reachable by the members of the community they are sharing the resources with.  If they don't want to participate in the shared public resource then they don't need shared public resources in the first place.  The simple act of reserving a globally unique address consumes a shared resource and obligates the consumer to be reachable, even if the globally unique address is never routed globally. JMO </kjk>
	What good is a "private" POC?  Who would ever got to use it if it's private???
	Can someone come up with a single legitimate example of why they should have public Internet resources assigned to them, but their contact information should be hidden from the world??
