After considering the issue with IAB - the RIPE NCC is operating the Tier0 registry on behalf of the IAB - we came to the conclusion that the RIPE NCC shall refrain from offering such an even only temporary ENUM directory service to the community, as such a service would be better carried out by a different entity to preserve a clear understanding of responsibilities in the Internet community.
Also the effects of such a temporary directory relating to the longer term issue of ENUM directories and associated privacy and regulatory issues are not fully explored yet and need more consideration.

Thanks for your understanding - best,
