"
ISPs must provide reassignment information on the entire previously
allocated block(s) via SWIP or RWHOIS server for /29 or larger blocks.
For blocks smaller

than /29 and for internal space, ISPs should provide utilization data
using the table format described in Section 4.2.3.7.5.

Rationale:

With increasing frequency of smaller than /29 assignements to customers,
the ability for ISP's to utilize SWIP or RWHOIS as a single
comprehensive source of their utilization data should be supported. To
implement this policy change, ARIN SWIP would need to no longer reject
SWIP templates smaller then /29.
