But then again there is an obligation for banks to know their clients
(KYC) and ensure accurate details of the client is obtained
(Ironically also mentioned in the GDPR). International anti-money
laundering policies exists in a system that seeks to regulate
illegitimate abuse of the banking system. This system is even
supported by countries where we see zero real cyber consumer
protection policy. The system does not seek to protect it's own to the
detriment of all other, instead we see massive fines.

So trying to compare ICANN to the Financial Action Task Force, Banks
to Registrars, and registrants to bank clients is not even remotely
appropriate.

But it would be. Then we'd have less "Inno Cent" registrants (PA
registrant name which is an alias for "Bar Clay" in a case Compliance
self blinded to, now at Complaints).

Incidentally, in the abuse we fight, linked to domain abuse, much
money laundering info goes into the Financial Action Task Force system
- enough said.
