No data at all is one thing, less data is an entirely different
thing.

" We further emphasize our earlier point that ICANN should not
strive for a one-size-doesnt-fit-any policy, but should leave local

permits registrars to comply with applicable privacy legislation
through local or national "policy profiles". "
