Hi Roberto, agreeing with you, since I am from a country where anonymousness
is forbidden by the Constitution, and this not means the information of
anyone is public, for me it sounds like the anonymousness just goes in the
benefit of the bad guy. Government - if there where lies the fear - has
thousands of opportunities to control the citizen´s life. Once is not public
other person will not be able to reach it. Roberto, If you once understand
it, please public it to the benefit of our knowledge.

Happy new year to all.
Let me add a late comment to this thread.
I believe that the registration of a domain requires the owner of the domain
to correctly identify oneself to the registering authority, but that this
information does not need necessarily to be public.
This is not a new debate, but it still comes in waves, without substantial
changes in the opinions of the different parties. Years ago, I think it was
at the Tunis/Carthage (2003?), we had this discussion and I replied to
Marilyn Cade making the example of car registration: a car owner is obliged
to provide complete and accurate information to the registration authority,
but this information is not necessarily public. Actually, I am not aware of
any national car registry in which you can access this information without
proving that you need it, and qualify yourself.
I have not yet heard a convincing argument on why the domain names have to
be treated differently.
