If you preface your query with the word "domain", it looks like it yields
the same registry information that rs.internic.net now does, with the
addition of a legal disclaimer:

    [mct@access:(1514) ~]$ telnet whois.networksolutions.com whois
    Trying 198.41.0.8 ...
    Connected to whois.networksolutions.com.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    dom yahoo.com
    <snip>
    Whois Server Version 1.1

    Domain names in the .com, .net, and .org domains can now be registered
    with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
    for detailed information.

       Domain Name: YAHOO.COM
       Registrar: NETWORK SOLUTIONS, INC.
       Whois Server: whois.networksolutions.com
       Referral URL: www.networksolutions.com
       Name Server: NS3.EUROPE.YAHOO.COM
       Name Server: NS1.YAHOO.COM
       Name Server: NS2.DCA.YAHOO.COM
       Name Server: NS5.DCX.YAHOO.COM
       Updated Date: 24-jan-2000

The "dump" technique still works, though.
