This is an interesting point so please clarify it so that I may
clarify my proposal as necessary.   

>From a reading of my draft text, the revocation of IP address space
would be consequent to a (months-long) pattern of ignoring 
documented complaints or refusing to enable or (once enabled)
operate <postmaster> or other RFC-mandated role accounts.  These
are easily and irrefutably documented and not susceptible to
joe-jobs.   I have one particular case in mind (in APNIC space)
where the service provider brazenly ignores all complaints about
spam.   This is the kind of scum who should be shut off.

So what is the particular problematical scenario you foresee, so
that we can come up with a strategy to deal with it?
