Maybe the key to make everyone happy is the word "can" instead of "must". Why not make it optional? If companies are in good faith or they like the idea then they will use it, and they will also be happy to maintain the data. Otherwise it will be just a waste of time on another wrong/outdated/malicious dataset. How fun it is to check the validity of a validated address? Life is too short, right? > This legal address is usually publicly available anyhow and can be then validated by the RIPE NCC. Duplicating data instead of referencing it breaks the first database design rule. Companies are forced by law to keep their chamber of commerce data up to date. THAT is the best source of information and it is readily available. Don't reinvent the wheel. This proposal is can of worms: - same data in many places is difficult to maintain and prone to errors - doesn't stop bad actors - quickly provides massive information to data harvesters and scammers In my opinion this proposal is not the right way to identify a resource holder the way you dreamt. It's not a elegant solution and in general I have a bad feeling about it, imagine a blunt tool that not only will make a poor job but also will bring a lot of frustration. Ok for me if it is optional, otherwise I'm against. Regards, -- Nik Soggia - TELNET S.r.l. Phone: +39-0382-529751 Via Buozzi, 5 - 27100 Pavia, Italy Fax: +39-0382-528074
