Geoff, what is your opinion on asking IANA to publish this prefix list
through their whois interface (whois.iana.net) which currently does
serve some domains like .int.

This would be useful for redirection purposes to the correct RIR or
simply finding out the RFC to which space this belongs to ;)

This would probably be bad idea, because every script in the world would be changed to query from the IANA whois, and they would get swamped.

I symphatize with this, but it would seem that it might significantly alter the IANA whois service requirements.. not something that can be done overnight.
