I guess that Geoff Huston's predictions are his own work, since
they're on his potaroo site, not APNIC's site, but as an 
employee of APNIC, he is pretty well informed.  Tony Li is not
affiliated with any RIR, but is also well-informed.

So, could you be specific about what data are missing that
ARIN might provide?
