There is to some extent some community self-auditing that is done.  


If one needs to contact an operator and discovers that the contact
information is incorrect, maybe that one could be flagged somehow for
audit as opposed to doing a blanket audit of all of them.  A top to
bottom audit would take considerable human resources and most of them
would probably be correct anyway.  And most of those that are incorrect
would be people who aren't having issues.  A lot of time would be spent
locating and correcting records that aren't causing a problem.


The ones that are related to some sort of issue AND are incorrect would
tend to surface rather quickly and people would find them in the course
of their normal operations.

My take on this is not whether there is whois info or not. whois info is
a must have. And accurate whois information is important to ARIN.


The system we create for collecting that info is in question as is
...what info. is available to whom. Where a reallocation has an isp (for
eg) as a contact because the isp agrees to be, my thinking is that ARIN
needs to have all the info. on the reallocation and in many cases, the
information available to the public is not as detailed as the info.
which is available to ARIN.

We also need to decide on the level of accuracy required for ARIN
records and that ultimately  determines what we put in place. I think
I'm getting the view that the current whois database is a little way off
the required standard?? And there would seem to be much use of the or
maybe abuse of the current system as suggested by the 2006 audit.
