Bill - 

With respect to “ERX” only (I have no view on the other matter), I would note that some form 
of cross-registry support for Whois, reverse DNS, and other registry services would still have 
been necessary (whether called “ERX" or something else.)   This is particularly true now given
inter-RIR transfers and will remain true in any environment other than one with a single shared 
services backend.
