John, does ARIN have any flag for validated organizations?  Or at least ones which have signed a contract?  Based on personal experience and some attempts to retrieve orphan resources, I suspect there are a large number of dead or MIA organizations/persons in that list. I’ve been in contact with ARIN regarding at least 20-something resource holders where we were unable to fix incorrect data or otherwise establish appropriate chain of authority. These would show as duplicates for the organizations which are actively routing said resources today.

…assuming my experience has any statistical relevance.
