If I understand correctly, the implementation is similar to that of the .ca ccTLD (which is the one I know best), in that private individuals have their data hidden, but commercial entities have their details still shown in whois. Is this the case?
I doubt, however, that any of the gTLDs will be moved by this, as the registrars make a huge amount of money offering "private" registrations and they would lobby hard against such a change for .com etc.

I have just checked the whois information for google.fr and google.ca and they both contain detailed information, including email addresses and telephone numbers. So the situation with .nl domains is substantial different from those two countries.
At least one french registrar offers "private" at no extra cost on dotfr ..but says that they cannot do so for dotcom ( even if one paid )..and yet their USA site offers "private" for dotcom at no extra cost ..
Totally illogical ..
They "sniff" to see where you are registering from ..
