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.

What the working group can do, and actually seems to be on a good track,
is to identify problems due to the current way the RIPE whois works 
(listing changed: and notify:, and people abusing that for abuse mails,
while not listing the irt: object by default) and improve *this*.
