My viewpoint is AS8075 will not use it.  Like hundreds|thousands of others operators, we use RADB (a paid service with an SLA that works) for our IRR entries.

My viewpoint is ARIN should not offer an IRR anymore, as there is too much garbage data in it, and the cost of re-development efforts strongly outweighs the benefits to the operational community. 

My viewpoint is the ARIN board should be tight-fisted with ARIN member money, and ensure that every development dollar that is spent has measurable benefit to ARIN's customers on a broad scale.

My viewpoint is the RPKI money spent is a lesson that the board should keep at the forefront of this decision making process: millions (?) were spent, for little measurable benefit.
