One of the technical problems is that some of these "tiered access" and
"footprint" models may work only for a web-based whois system, and,

Actually, it'll only work until data brokers start fronting for the actual parties, which I expect will take, oh, 15 minutes to happen?


Roberto points out, changing the nature of the service will add costs to
registrar and/or registry operations. Who pays?

It would be out of character for ICANN to worry about that. Who pays for domain tasting?
