In the light of the sheer size of the database, and increasing numbers of
records, I cannot disagree. I was also reminded by a friend yesterday that
the definition of Privacy is undergoing substantial change in both
Government and Private sector spheres and the use of Social networks is I
think responsible for a need to rethink what we mean by it.

ARIN then as a community resource should be the preferred trusted custodian
of all levels of privacy pertaining to number resources and determine policy
for levels of access in the interests of the community.
