I do not support this proposal. In fact this issue would bring me very actively out against it. In particular because it will effectively remove all validation of mobile phone, cable and dsl operators.

It may be tricky to say "exactly this customer has this IP" but it is fairly trivial to show ARIN that you have a pool of customers this size who are configured within the given dynamic pool. ARIN has been very flexible with accepting the information in the form it was the easiest for us to provide it at the time.

Re "fairly trivial": unless you have given each customer IP information and then forgotten it, and you have no idea who has what or how they got it… which is simply isn't a valid way to operate. You have this information.
