RIPE already makes it difficult for spammers to grab the e-mail addresses
(because there are rate limits on the amount of person: objects you can
query) - maybe not 100% efficient, and yes, spammers will get some more
harvest from the RIPE DB, but the overall usefulness to non-spammers 
shouldn't be killed, just to make spammers implement JavaScript-Harvesters...
