Precisely! Normal people will be unable to get any relief from unintentional DOS or check the (alleged) provenance of possible scammers, but "authenticated" (either by a secret court or a envelope of cash) users will still be able to stalk you.

The problems of Whois will not be solved by changing from plain text BS to BS wrapped in a typical modern "don't fall in love with the protocol, as it will break when new emoji are added" protocol.
