Hi John,

I would rather ARIN survey the Members/community on this issue rather
than the "if you could make money flogging your IP space would you
want to" kind of survey.

In addition, I think that rfg has a rather simplistic view of accuracy
of the DB entries.

Perhaps John, you can enlighten us as to whois responsible for said
accuracy?.   I had thought that it was largely down to holders of
resources to keep information up-to-date, with the caveat that ARIN RS
does have some role to play for those allocations and direct
assignments it maintains.

What I see happening is that that ARIN is being put in a damned if
they do and damned if they don't position in re: accuracy of legacy
resources, with some folk saying "ARIN is not doing its job regarding
accuracy of legacy entries" and others saying "don't you dare touch
any legacy entries".

Anyway that's my 2 shillings.
