I doubt that a proposal forcing LIRs to handle stuff would gain acceptance.

Quoting the proposal:
"Currently within the AfriNIC region, the growing amount of abuse reports
are sent to e-mail address specified in the e-mail field, as encouraged
on the AfriNIC website."
There has been questions such as:
"How can a barely noticeable island hundreds of miles east of Madagascar
have a Cyber Tower or Cyber City which is an Internet hub for the
entire African continent?"
I suggest looking at the various Whois implementations and see
whether they follow the referral.
