For the time being, let's stay focused on the question of suggestion 2011.21
(which would have ARIN enhance the present email template system to include
requests for new and additional number resource requests, including the
ongoing maintenance of these templates as number resource policy changes.)
If you feel that you need additional functionality, then I'd ask you drop
me an email, raise it during the Vancouver meeting, or make use of the ARIN
Suggestion Process <https://www.arin.net/participate/acsp/index.html>
It is good to stay focused out of respect to many ARIN members who are on
this list because they care about how ARIN invests its resources, but do not
want to lose the majority of their day to numerous simultaneous threads.
If you have views about whether this suggestion is worthwhile or not, please
post (along with your reasoning if at all possible.)

If ARIN combined this with the From: verification ARIN already supports, then even if someone intercepted your API key, they wouldn't be able to do anything with it via email unless they can send email from your email server, too.
