I have some understanding about the position of the IAB and RIPE NCC according to that issue, as a database whith personel
information whenever you create it can cause problems with dataprivacy, correctness et al. I would rather suggest that we asked the
RIPE NCC to provide the information whether and where each national trial has this information or if you use the mnt-lower-structure
and the whois you altready get the information where possible.
