Fine. I said that registration data for a domain name have to be complete
and correct. I am not at all against the fact that the owner has to be
identified by the registration authority.

Besides the fact that there is a difference between the owner and the
driver, as the great Miles Davis said: "So What?".
I thought I made it clear that authorized bodies had to have access to
registration information. Authorized bodies include not only the authority
issuing the licence plates, but also the customs authority at the border. I
maintain that it does not include the general public. I am not aware of
situations in which data collected at the border checkpoint are made public.
Do you?

Miles Davis' 32-bar statement applies here as well ;>)

I'll leave it to the readers to judge.
