The law. Data protection and privacy legislation still applies even if
the data subjects don't care about the privacy if their data.

Maybe. But I have two unlisted numbers which I'll be entering in the
UK trial. They're not secret: my office numbers just aren't listed in
the phone book.

If we turn things around, it's possible that whois requirements could
discourage people to come forward in the trials. For instance I'm
happy to enter my phone numbers in ENUM. But I would not be happy
having them tied to a whois entry containing my home or office address.

Indeed, but in this context I definitely wasn't mixing the two.
