Sorry for not understanding it. But I can only duplicate data that is
already there. But abuse specific data is not there. There are no places
to put in non filtered abuse@ addresses. There are no places to add a
communication address. There is no single point I can look at and find
everything I need.

In my opinion the duplication problem is not a problem and the loss of
synchronization will be faced by this next proposal.
