I have to say I agree with William.  Is there not a way that access to this database can be limited to ARIN membership?  This won't fully satisfy his request for security which is reasonable, but maybe it reduces his security issue and at the same time provides members with the ability to find out who really is assigned a block.

Opposed. This has the effect of removing all public accountability for the ARIN-region consumers of IP addresses. It makes our reliance on ARIN absolute and, without public scrutiny, the community is placed in a position where it will have to demand ARIN engage in much more expensive auditing practices to assure ISPs with private whois entries are not cheating.
