[comments-whois] Privacy rights

I have the right to have an unlisted phone number.  Neither my name, nor 
address, nor email address, nor fax number, nor phone number will be 
published if I request such a service.  This type of service does not present 
any undue difficulties for the law enforcement community and is accepted as 
common practice worldwide.  Why then must all my contact details be published 
in the WHOIS?  

I have a right to protect my privacy.  Enforcing current ICANN policy 
regarding the accuracy of WHOIS data as articulated in section of the 
Registrar Accreditation Agreement is poor policy guidance to offer the ICANN 
Board.  Give us the equivalent of an unlisted phone number, and allow 
registrars to charge for such a service.
