This is all at the behest of security services of the USA and Europe. Don't these people realise how easy it is to create untraceable email addresses? Just about everybody I know who has registered domains has cancelled the email address they registered it under because of tons of spam from whois scrapers.
This will cause untold woe for the innocent whilst the untraceable criminals just shrug their shoulders. A typical case of governments meddling in things they don't understand.
