Nah. The right answer is to synchronize the data somehow. The data could either be replicated or a referral could be provided. Not rocket science.Would we want to change whois output to include the 'pub/priv' flag?or "conflicting data" flag?
I think I can state authoritatively (:-)) that the IANA is aware of (at least some of) the discrepancies and has address registry data synchronization on its priority list.
