Yes. I think this should either work already by using the MNT-LOWER and referal mechanism of the RIPE-DB. Another possible mechanism
for the future would be to use the SRV-RR to locate whois services. The mechanism was developed in the CENTR tech-wg. A presentation
of the mechanism you can find on http://www.ripe.net/ripe/meetings/archive/ripe-42/presentations/ripe42-dns-srv/sld001.html. There
are already clients available which support this approach.

There is also the possibility to provide these lists via whois like it was done for domains in the past. But that would generate
another potential spam-ressource
