Hi Jim,

There is general consensus within the UK ENUM Group that a whois functionality is neither necessary nor desirable. I suppose this could change in light of experience gained during the trial. Maybe you missed my citation about TS 102 172 For ENUM, I think that ultimately DNS hosting will be done by the telco or equivalent entity that's responsible for some number block. Huh? Now it seems you missed at lot of the recent discussion. In UK you have numberblocks hosted by telcos, interesting, especially all the big ported single number blocks. regards Richard If that's true, this entity can be the initial point of contact for any DNS technical issues which crop up. I wonder how often whois gets genuinely used for that purpose today? And for ENUM, there will be cases where people will want to register a domain and NOT have a whois entry at all: an unlisted phone number perhaps. I believe that some regulators can get uptight about providing a reverse lookup capability on telephone numbers.
