IMHO, ARIN's responsibility is to follow its own process.  In
other words, to operate on the premise that when the originator
of a SWIP says "allocation" they mean "allocation" and when they
say "assignment" they mean "assignment".  

If the SWIP is submitted with an error, the originator should
submit a correction.
