It is ARIN's responsibility to respect the wishes of the paying clients of 
those network blocks via that client's template submissions.

ARIN has no definitive way to prove that the changes being requested by the 
client's downstream are accurate.  That puts a burden on that body that it 
simply does not need.

It is the client's responsibility to ensure that the network blocks are 
appropriately SWIPed by its downstreams.
