Is the information in the "contract signed" email not sufficient to

that someone is the Domain Name Registrant, you have to ascertain they
work for that company.

If it's not, then we should get ICANN to add more info to those emails.

There is also a mailing list, and a spreadsheet auto-populated from the
mailing list which Mozilla maintains.

As Ryan says, the choice of "contracted" was intentional.
