I believe it would be in the best interest of the Internet community to
have a well maintained IRR by ARIN.

I believe ARIN is in a unique position to do this.  ARIN has a direct
relationship with the organizations to which it allocates number resources
to, and a contact which is regularly billed (for resources under RSA) and
POCs which are validated annually.

Having an IRR which necessarily reflects this registration data (as SWIP
does today) would be good for the community.

Allowing resource holders to document downstream (proxy) registration
details of their re-allocates or re-assignments would also be good.  This
could be closely coupled with SWIP or RWhois.

Allowing holders of re-allocates or assignments to document their usage
would be good to the extent ARIN can verify that are the authentic resource
holder.  Perhaps some of the RPKI machinery could be useful here.

The other RIRs are in the same unique position as ARIN, and ARIN should
work with them to ensure this service can be provided globally if they wish
to participate.

I do not believe ARIN should undertake work to establish or maintain an IRR
which can be updated by anyone, nor should it mirror databases that do.

If ARIN cannot determine who is an authentic resource holder (by virtue of
their existing relationship with the resource holder) or if they cannot
keep the IRR data closely coupled with the registry data, then they should
not maintain an IRR.
