http://www.geektools.com/cgi-bin/proxy.cgi appears to access the old AUNIC
whois which is no longer authoritative for com.au, org.au, and id.au domain
names.  The contact details shown there are already going out of date.

> shows the address and creation date

One of the beneficial effects of the Registrar Transfer policy is that
domains transferred from one Registrar to another get a new registration at
time of Transfer.  This de-links the renewal date from the creation date,
and over time will make the old creation date data less reliable as a source
of dodgy marketing mailouts.
