What do they do if you stop paying?  Reclaim your space?  Ask your peers
to stop accepting your route advertisements?  Deny future allocations
until your balance is paid current?

IIRC, up-to-date swips are not required by ARIN.  Even an open rwhois 
isn't required AFAIK.  The minimum requirement IIRC is rwhois data 
available to ARIN.  Sure it'd be nice if everyone swipped everything and 
kept the data up to date, but I don't think there's anything ARIN can do 
to force that to happen.  If your swips are out of date, about the best I 
think ARIN can do is require you to clean up the mess before receiving 
your next allocation.

And everyone can pay more for their space since this is going to require 
more work on ARIN's end.

Someone would still have to program the automation.
