Publish role accounts in whois instead of personal information?

Sorry, I don't mean to break up an energetic tirade but a phone number
is not PII when it's attached to "hostmaster" instead of "John Doe".
You and I like knowing that there's a specific person there and it
certainly helps when auditing public policy compliance but as a
technical matter contact doesn't have to work that way.

I noticed that Namecheap solved their GDPR problem by simply making
their "WhoisGuard" product free.
