Perhaps this is an indication that the 'currently conceived' approach
is not a good one.

I really do believe that 'who the registrant is' must be easily
available online public information ('whois') for many reasons...
legal, technical, practical, even without taking into consideration
the possible need for the information to be available for ICANN
enfranchisement reasons.

Anyway, I'm sure there is a way for registrants to prove to ICANN's
satisfaction that they are registrants if necessary.
