Right, but the problem is, that you have again personal objects. Which
you wanna protect by restricting whois queries. The IRT Object should
not be restricted that way. So how do you wanna solve this in the whois

And why creating a new field and a complete new way if APNIC and RIPE
are already using or will using this way in future?
