Ted - 
Under this philosophical approach, what would ARIN's responsibilities be with respect to an organization which files no SWIP's and runs no rwhois service? 

More specifically, if an organization is willing to accept the incident/security response obligations implied by not showing sub-delegations, is that "acceptable" until/unless the organization needs to show utilization for an additional address block?   (If so, wouldn't it be best to update the NRPM to reflect this "optionality" of SWIPs/rwhois data?)
