Yes, but I'd mark such records in the registration database as 'tentative' (or some such).

The approach Postel chose in such cases was to leave things as they were until there was consensus among the contesting parties.  It has worked (more or less) in the TLD space at IANA, I think it is a reasonable course of action.

I'd probably use the 'tentative' (or some such) status in these case, but I suspect it's context sensitive.

The overarching point is that augmenting the database to provide additional information related to policy conformance can be beneficial for the consumers of the database.  Not updating records is the opposite.
