Even in European Law, there has to be a refusal to provide the 
information on reasonable terms, and one must treat the results as 
confidential.  One would guess that reasonable terms would include the 
payment of a fee and include a confidentiality agreement.  I would have 
thought that an open source implementation would be a breach of the 
requirement not to publish.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
