Your child ends up on smut site after she typos an address of a legit childrens site...
Providing personal information without regards for safety because parents don't watch their kids isn't reason enough to have full disclosure on the owner of a domain name. My cheapy $400 firewall can prevent me from ending up on a site I'm not "supposed to be on" and all I had to do was plug it in. What you propose as a solution is taking away some serious liberties; we all have the right to protect ourselves, just as much as you have the right to go to courts and subpoena information as you see fit. Trying to paint some one as a protector of "evil doers" is going no where, just as trying to require people to input accurate information in WHOIS will be just as dire. It will never work and it won't happen, ever. All of my domain's whois info are through a proxy, that proxy's info is legitimate, and under a court order they will provide my accurate information. Why should it be easier to obtain my address, phone numbers and email address for criminals or people who want to cause me harm? I don't see the logic in it.
