"And contact them if necessary for operational purposes."

This problem has already been addressed. Any well setup domain has e-mail addresses as per RFC2142, i.e.:

abuse@example.com

hostmaster@example.com

postmaster@example.com

The solution is as simple as ICANN mandating these addresses are valid and if they're found not to be, you'll forfeit your domain registration, maybe after a few strikes.
