	Not quite.  A new attribute was added to a number of object

A quick summary is available on:

http://www.ripe.net/db/news/abuse-implemented-20050421.html

	Which is where I found the information in my comment above.

	It's up to whomever is responsible for a given database
	object to advertise an abuse-mailbox for that object or for
	a less-specific related object.  "Think globally, act locally".
	For example, checking just now to avoid embarrassment showed
	that role UNA2-RIPE seems to have this attribute since 20050505.

	Doing what you can to convince others to do likewise is not
	forbidden. It's never too late. 8-)
