Yes, for users the issue is not so much on the protocol as on getting the information it contains right. Of course if the "established e-Tailer" is "Nominet was able to match the registrant's name and address against a 3rd party data source" then you can consider it fair warning. If the registrant is a business, tell us because it isn't PII. If it's an individual then comply with GDPR or equivalent legislation elsewhere. Sole traders need to be considered; off hand I'm not sure what GDPR has to say about those as data subjects.
