    It IS a paid service.  All US taxpayers pay for it.  The agencies that
    collect this info exist only because we pay for them.  Everything that we
    pay for should be made freely available unless there is some compelling
    national security reason for it to we withheld. 
    
    I think the point of this discussion is wrong.  Instead of looking for
    substitutes, we should look for ways to require the current info to continue
    to be furnished at no additional charge.
    If that doesn't work, then go for the substitutes.
