What would be great is if we ditched whois altogether in favour of
RDAP, which has a mechanism to look this up for every top-level DNS
name registry.  Then we wouldn't have to rely on whois server name
heuristics.  I'm very much in favour of proceeding with RDAP; I just
think the initial profile could be better.

Best regards,
