The whois binairy on OS-X has a -I, so `whois -I xxx` would return info.

Not exactly official, but the same binairy is using "whois-servers.net",
for anything it doesn't know.
So for some ccTLD's I've requested for an update of missing CNAME entries,
that were listed in whois.iana.org, but not yet working in whois-servers.net.
They now work to, but I'm curious how much they will keep up with the nTLD's.


Met vriendelijke groet,
With kind regards,
