"At this point, trying to argue that collecting the data is necessary falls flat on its face over the kerbstone of historic indifference to its accuracy and I'm fairly sure that german courts will point that out."

Sort of. The defendants might well point it out to the courts and the court would then note it in the judgement. Most likely the defence will point out that contract terms can't override legislation and here's a sling in which the court can hand ICANN its arse.
