[ppml] [arin-discuss] Privacy of Reassignment Information

If the information can be legitimately obscured, then it is only a  
matter of time before the anonymity will be abused by unscrupulous  
people.

I think it would be prudent to take a letter from other "governance"  
discussions, and strongly resist the temptation to combat "higher  
level" abuses by imposing the enforcement burden on "lower level"  
operations/administrative structures. ARIN and the RIRs are vested  
with responsibility for maintaining records for number resources held  
in public trust. If the records are abused, the specific abuses and  
abusers should be targeted -- even if this is more difficult --  
rather than taking the easy route of attacking the underlying systems.
