And from that data, PPML can build (and ask) for solutions so that Whois can be made more accurate, and transfer requests can perhaps enjoy a much higher approval and completion percentage.

It's not often that I see >50% characterized as a "very low" percentage rate.
If one is presuming that 100% should be approved, then that characterization 
makes sense. Given that a number of NRPM 8.2 applicants have been shown to be
not in good faith during the application process, I am quite pleased that the
completion rate is less than 100%.

> But before that happens, can you please comment on the statistical trend of the last 3 years, where we went up 10% in both approvals and completions? Giving best guesses, to what factors does ARIN attribute these excellent increases? IOW, what changed? 

Anecdotally, it would be the presence of more parties interested in accurate 
resource records in early preparation for NRPM 8.3/8.4 transfer market use.
The combination of that increased interest along with our consistent rejection 
of specious/undocumented requests, increases the overall ratio of good-faith
diligent requesters making use of the NRPM 8.2 policy and thus approval ratio.
