Sorry for the delay in responding to this.
Just my thoughts, but I'd like to see a time interval actually specified in
the proposal, whether it be 6 or 12 months. Without that, we'd have access
to the bulk data until ARIN changes the password, at which point you mail in
another request and wait for them to send a new one. I've been waiting over
a month as it stands now, with no response. With a specified time interval,
we can send in the authorization by a certain point to avoid interrupting
access to the bulk data.
