Bill -

ARIN asks for whatever information is necessary to verify 
the assignments that have been made from an address 
block, as that information is required for verification of the 
address block utilization. Per policy, additional allocations 
can not be made until existing address block utilization is 

There is no existing language which specifies only certain 
information is to be requested in verifying utilization; you 
are in uncharted territory.  

I believe your revised policy proposal will accomplish some 
of what you intended, as under that policy proposal ARIN 
would request only redacted information for assignments 
which are smaller than /29.  However, if you have any 
questions on how this or other policy language will be 
implemented, and for sake of expediency over email 
discourse, please feel free to call me anytime 
(+1 617 512 8095) and I will address any questions 
you may have on proposed policy language.
