I assume that you are referring to limiting queries against the whois? I 
am unsure how creating a new object type solves that problem. Any object 
type is open to abuse and I expect all objects in the whois to be 
suitably protected against abuse.

I also fail to see the difference between an 'irt' object and a 'role' 
object. I would appreciate if you could help me out here.

The way that its done in the rest of the world is not AUTOMATICALLY the 
right way to do it in Africa. ;-)
