FW: .org whois - a clarification

The following comment was made privately, yet since it may be of
interest to others, I am posting the question and noting that we have
gone ahead and done this.

There has been some confusion about the naming of the new .org whois

for

port 43 service. As noted now on our web site, and also in other

posts,

it can be found at:

whois.publicinterestregistry.net

why not also

  whois.pir.org

for those of us who actually type this stuff on command lines? Any
chance
of a CNAME? Sure would be nice.
