The "right to be forgotten" debacle is tied to a single court ruling.

Using that  to question the "credibility" of ALL  privacy law is a bit of a stretch

The privacy issue you raise is one that EU based registrars face every day.

FWIW, I'm seeing that the EU position on privacy has been, shall we say, declining in credibility<http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jul/06/right-to-be-forgotten-internet-work-of-fiction-david-mitchell-eu-google>. It has probably been necessary to engage the experiment to see what happens when obsession with privacy -- to the exclusion of accountability, free speech rights or public interest -- is carried to its logical conclusions.

It wouldn't surprise me to see some of these excesses rolled back.
