ICANN *does* have a requirement for accurate information in WHOIS andWhile I'm not familiar with the precise enforcement mechanisms or policy, I do know of one ISP who had the delegation for their (.com) domain name unexpectedly pulled by the registry in response to a complaint about inaccurate whois information directed at ICANN.
It was painful for the ISP, especially since it happened during the time that Verisign's sitefinder was live, which caused e-mail to ISP customers to be hard bounced from Verisign and people looking for their web page to be presented with a "this domain is not registered" page instead of a browser error.
It's well worth avoiding, even without the additional sitefinder complications :-)
