Why not use rwhois and distribute the load like DNS is? Let registerants
decide if they want to provide rwhois support for their own domain(s) or
if they want to delegate the task to the InterNIC to handle it.
Gee... imagine being able to update data about your DNS domains immediately
instead of having to wait for the InterNIC to process the request.
Just my $0.02.
