The swiss ccTLD seems to have things set up just right - and I would be interested to find out if you think they're in breach of any european law for doing what RIPE NCC appears to steadfastly refuse to do. https://www.nic.ch/reg/cm/wcm-page/index.html?res=EF6GW2JBPVTG67DLNIQXU234MN6SC33JNQQGI7L6#a323 2.5 Duty of data maintenance The holder is responsible for ensuring that all the data of domain names registered for the holder and recorded by SWITCH in the database, such as the data of the contact persons and technical details of the domain name, are kept up-to-date, complete and correct for the entire term of registration. For SWITCH, only the respective data registered in its database are authoritative. SWITCH is not obliged to take note of data communicated other than via www.nic.ch or the interface or to itself conduct research into the accuracy of these data. If the data prove to be incomplete, inaccurate or not up-to-date, particularly with regard to references to a third party, and if as a result the identity of the holder can be determined only at disproportionate time and effort or if messages to the holder and/or the billing contact are undeliverable, SWITCH is entitled to revoke this holder's domain name. 2.6 Holder's correspondence address SWITCH may demand that the holder of a domain name without a correspondence address in Switzerland for .ch domain names, or in Liechtenstein for .li domain names, supply such an address within 30 calendar days upon a demand to this effect from a Swiss authority for .ch or the Liechtenstein Office of Telecommunications (AK) for .li. Should the holder fail to supply any address or fail to supply a valid and correct correspondence address in Switzerland or Liechtenstein within this deadline, SWITCH will revoke his domain name. *3.2.3* *Temporary blocking of domain names and/or deletion of the name server assignment* b) Blocking of a domain name on suspicion of abuse If there is a justified suspicion that the domain name is being used to obtain sensitive data by wrongful means or to disseminate harmful software (malicious code), SWITCH may delete the name server assignment to a domain name and block it for five days. SWITCH is obliged to block a domain name for 30 days if an application to this effect is made by an agency appropriately recognised by the Swiss Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM). The holder may demand a contestable order against the block from the Federal Office of Police (FEDPOL) within 30 days of its commencement. Otherwise, the further procedure and process is governed by the relevant provisions of the Ordinance on Addressing Resources in the Telecommunications Sector (OARTS).
