To be clear, the reason that " our consistent rejection of specious/undocumented 
requests" has led to higher approval rates is that it deters future requests which 
cannot be approved, and these become fewer in number over time compared to the 
significant increase in valid applicants due to the increased interest in market 

There are other ways to increase the NRPM 8.2 request approval ratio (if that is a 
desirable goal); however, it is not clear that setting such a goal would contribute 
at all in "making Whois more accurate" as postulated in your early message.
