David - 

  Good to know; thanks for taking the time to comment on this.

  This reminds me - we're now actively working to determine appropriate
  retention for this more detailed information; we obviously need to 
  have it long enough to review for determine utilization of the address
  blocks, and potentially some additional time to facilitate follow-on 
  questions or appeals, but do not want to have this information being
  retained by ARIN any longer than needed.  We'll provide an update to 
  the community as soon as we have a revised process active which provides
  for minimal retention.

Thanks & FYI,

John Curran
President and CEO
