Okay, than there should be a policy proposal which is looking at these
problems and force LIRs to handle their stuff in the right way. That is
absolutely fine and I will support this proposal as well.

But this has nothing to do with this proposal. This proposal is
addressing the need for a dedicated abuse contact object.

It is not pointless, because there are good LIRs out there. They wanna
have a dedicated object and it would be unfair to punish them for others
LIRs behavior.

IMHO you should write another proposal forcing LIRs to do the right
thing, but that has absolutely nothing to do with this proposal.
