[anti-spam-wg@localhost] Abuse contact


Some RIPE entries already include abuse information, but not in a uniform type.

Arin has some extra abuse contact attributes:
OrgAbuseHandle: ABUSE23-ARIN
OrgAbuseName:   Abuse
OrgAbusePhone:  +1-800-436-8489
OrgAbuseEmail:  abuse@localhost

I'ld like to suggest a new RIPE-DB attribute: "abuse-mail".

It should be required for every new allocation and optional for assignments.
Somewhere in the future, the whois server should automatically return the
most-specific "abuse-mail"-entry which exists.
For example: allocation has an "abuse-mail"-entry, but
    has none. In this case, the entry from the allocation
	     is returned. has an own "abuse-mail"-entry which is returned if
	     someone queries this object.
