2. Well, I guess I dont find the majority of the data I send in useless.
Plus, the manor of less data that you are referring to is already included
in the database...so wouldnt it just be best to leave it up to the judment
of the person looking to get ahold of a POC to decide for themselves whether
they want to contact the ARIN Directly Allocated USER or the Re-allocated
user? Does taking away choices really resolve the end goal to have valid
POC's? I dont think it does...it just minimizes the options people
have....and in alot of cases (especially with my company) will slow down the
response they get on issues if they dont have the ability to go straight to
the "actual user".

The corollary to which is... If we don't have valid contact data and
some chain of responsibility then I don't see much use of the whole WHOIS
database. (other than as a source of addresses to spam)
I'd rather have less data that's valid than more data that's useless.
