1.	This is not about lame server delegations. It's about  
operationally incomplete
	DNS data.
2.	DNS is not routing, but, DNS Operations, like routing, are outside  
of ARIN's scope.
3.	It still doesn't have anything to do with stewardship over the  
address space
	or address assignment policy.
4.	This is an operational issue.
5.	ARIN is an address policy forum and not an operational forum.

If you want a policy body, I'd say this belongs to IETF more than any  
other
policy body I can think of.  It is clearly out of scope for ARIN in  
my opinion.
