This seems most relevant and accurate:
What I'm trying to point out here is that IMHO while accurate
whois data is desirable for technical troubleshooting, it's not
necessary for law enforcement.
Too bad ICANN didn't use the technical argument over the LEA
argument as it may have received a much warmer welcome, and may
have garnered more cooperation. But that shows you who's ass
ICANN is kissing. *SHRUG*
