Well, I would start small (and this means to exclude whois), and revisit
policy after some time to see what we should add or remove to it. And,
furthermore, why not do the next release of whois in a way that it's
possible to dynamically only update the zones (quite similar to the
virus scanners definitions), perhaps downloading from some debian site
once a month?
