I agree.  It would be nice in the hands of the local amateur
radio response organization, but I would not feel comfortable
making it widely publiclly available. 

Of course, as you say, its all out there, but in the spirit of
operational procedures, I would hope that any amateur that may
develop such a database search engine might consider limiting
access... To trusted and or registered agents.  And then TRACK
who THEY are spying on... <wink>
