I see a couple of interesting WHOIS related paras:

*Verification of contact information
> *As described in more detail below, there are specifications and policies
> that may be created and that apply to the Registrars. Some of the
> specifications or policies may address a Registrar's obligation to verify
> the contact information supplied by the Registered Name Holder when the
> domain is first registered, as well as setting out requirements for
> periodic re-verification of contact information<http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/wdrp.htm>
> .

> Registrars are also required to take "reasonable steps<http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/ra-agreement-21may09-en.htm#3.7.8>"
> to verify contact information in the event *any *person notifies the
> Registrar that contact information for a Registered Name is inaccurate. The
> Registrar also has obligations to act to correct inaccuracies in contact
> information that the Registrar becomes aware of, even if the inaccuracy was
> not reported by anyone.

> The Registrar must also maintain proper contact information<http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/ra-agreement-21may09-en.htm#3.16> for
> itself, including a valid email and mailing address. This contact
> information should be posted on the Registrar’s website.


Other Policies/Specifications

> The Restored Names Accuracy Policy<http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/rnap.htm>
>  (http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/rnap.htm) requires that when a
> registrar restores a name (from the redemption grace period) that had been
> deleted on the basis of submission of false contact data or non-response to
> registrar inquiries, the name must be placed on Registrar Hold status until
> the registrant has provided updated and accurate Whois information.
