It has been discussed there as a followup to ripe-47 and ripe-48, things
will be implemented. Please see the minutes for the DB-WG for more detail,
but it comes down to implementing things as requested.
[AP 48.5 RIPE NCC] To implement whatever consensus is reached
	on the mailing list regarding abuse contact.

If we reach consensus to use the DNS RR RP, we're done ?

Additional comments from those against using the DNS RR RP ?

There is nothing here to reach consensus about. Whoever wants to add
DNS RR RP records to his name server zones can do so.

The tricky thing is to convince those infamous tool authors to *query* for RP records, but as no tool authors are *here*, there isn't very much
the working group can do.
Apart from the fact that the RP record is a good and simple method, it does not seem to work in BIND 9. Using the example at http://soa.granitecanyon.com/pexample.html I created a RP record

mydomain.com IN RP abuse.mydomain.com.

which gives me the following error message from named:

Sep 24 14:02:27 xxxx named[21777]: dns_rdata_fromtext: mydomain.com:91: near eol: unexpected end of input

Sorry it this is out of scope of this list.
