Thanks for the feedback Bill!

FYI: The intent of adding the reverse DNS hook was twofold. First, as
you very correctly observe, it should help grab attention when needed
as an intermediate step before revoking resources, kind of a last
chance mechanism. The other intent is to grab attention when
revocation is too extreme, such as a failure to register downstream
delegations in WHOIS. As a community, we have identified time and
again the need for an accurate WHOIS. This "penny ante" mechanism may
help ARIN to ensure that the WHOIS database is as accurate and
complete as possible.
