A colleague came across the following in a WHOIS reply from Tucows for a
.COM domain:

 Registration Service Provider:
         Usableweb Ltd, info at papaki.gr
         +30.2810229010 (fax)
         This company may be contacted for domain login/passwords,
         DNS/Nameserver changes, and general domain support questions.

Is this something Tucows-specific, or is this something which should be
included in the WHOIS data model (alongside registry, registrar,
registrant, admin-c, tech-c, zone-c, billing-c etc.)?  Is the company
just a reseller of registrar services?

(Perhaps these questions are a bit off-topic.  If so, is there a better
list to discuss such issues?)
