The Intellectual Property Constituency writes:

"As of October 25, 2010, there were 122,270,795 active domain name registrations in the 5 gTLDs included in the NORC sample. Adopting the conservative figure of 18%, and counting only the “proxy registrations,” this means that, for some 20 million gTLD registrations, the current Whois system is completely failing in its objective (as stated in the report) of “ensur[ing] that the community can identify who is responsible for a domain name.” If “.proxy” were its own TLD, it would be larger than every other gTLD in the world, except for .com."
