The downstream isn't going to use the address space any differently just
because they can or can't submit reassignment information.  The issue isn't
whether or not downstreams should be forced into obeying negotiated terms,
the issue is how close the database should reflect reality.  ARIN will never
be able to enforce how already-allocated address space is used, anyone
pretending that the A/S field protects anything but the database is fooling

An organization bent on reselling services even when it has been explicitly
prohibited is going to do so regardless of their ability to document their
actions with SWIP.  At least if they are permitted to SWIP and do so, their
upstream will have evidence that they have broken the contract.
