It is not clear from that text that we want abuse-c to be inherited. IMHO, optimizations and database principles should be considered a fortunate coincidence. The semantic point is that we consider ISPs responsible for the kind of traffic that their customers operate. (The recent A2B vs Spamhaus story may illustrate this concept.) > The role should contain the following attributes: > > ... > address: [mandatory] > phone: [optional] > fax-no: [optional] > e-mail: [mandatory] [single] > abuse-mailbox: [mandatory] [single] * domain-name: [mandatory] [single] I re-propose adding a domain, the main domain that the abuse team belongs to, in order to avoid the email addresses to be meaningful in that respect. For example, one might want to outsource an abuse-mailbox, or to use external domains for fault-tolerance.
