I guess I could ask this question at the ICANN conference in Los Angeles this month (actually I just looked at my calendar and it's going on now! crap, I forgot!). They should be able to say one way or the other that one whois db can be counted on.

Something cool I also noticed through registering at when I look up my domain at, it displays it as taken and what my nameserver is and nothing else. My home address and phone number are not broadcast out to snail-mail spammers! This was always my big privacy beef with NSI, I never understood why personal domain registrants had to have their home address publicly available.
