[ga] New whois restrictions at NSI

Is anyone else worried about this?
This is the new boilerplate which precedes the results of InterNic whois

--begin quote--

Access to Network Solutions' WHOIS information is provided to assist
persons in 
determining the contents of a domain name registration record in NSI's 
registrar database.  The data in this record is provided by NSI for 
informational purposes only, and NSI does not guarantee its accuracy.  
Compilation, repackaging, dissemination, or other use of the WHOIS
in its entirety, or a substantial portion thereof, is not allowed
without NSI's
prior written permission.  By submitting this query, you agree to abide

Seems that NSI is acting as though it still _is_ the InterNic.
They really need to be severed from the maintenance of the data before
they become even more firmly entrenched, IMHO.
