Dear Holly,

For clarity, let me rephrase it: (terminology from Spreadsheet/Sheets)

1. There is a need for RDAP and a need for whois.

2. The problem with the whois protocol as you said, was that the whois
protocol wasn't designed for gated access. But the new protocol that is
being designed for gated access, solves the problem.  The new protocol,
while solving the old problem, need not create a new problem, which is that
of making whois unworkable.

The new protocol could both lock away sensitive data while keeping
non-sensitive data open for whois queries:

a) Registrant Data for Law and Order:  to allow layered access based on
privileges (accorded as timebound or otherwise) to different
entities/requesters to different clusters of rows/columns of data
and also
b) Registrant Data for All Users: allow permanent access to a central whois
computer to non-sensitive columns/rows of data, which gets stored for
access under the name "whois data".
