As we've discussed before, there's a PDP (Policy Development Process) underway to consider requiring thick Whois for all gTLD registries — including legacy TLDs such as com and net.

The Working Group published its Initial Report (here<http://gnso.icann.org/en/issues/whois/thick-initial-21jun13-en.pdf>), concluding there are more benefits than disadvantages to requiring thick Whois for all gTLD registries. The Working Group recommends that thick Whois services should "become a requirement for all gTLD registries, both existing and future."
