>                NRPM and ISP private reassignment
>                ISP has the option to register a reassignment as private.  A private reassignment is not visible on the public whois database.  Private reassignment is used in calculation of ISP utilization.  By register a reassignment as private, the ISP takes responsibility as POC by means of the direct allocation (parent of the reassigned address block) from ARIN that is publically registered in the whois database.
>   8. Rationale:
>                Some ISP's customers wish to keep their reassignment private.  This can be for security reasons.  It can also be that the customer does not have the staff or know-how to manage their network.  They in term outsource the management of their network to the upstream ISP.  By not having their reassignemnt record showing in public, the whois record of the parent ISP block is a truer representation of the reality.  It make shte whois database more accurate and cleaner.
