Martin - 
   ARIN staff implement the policy, and the requirement is quite
   clear in the present policy language.  I believe that there was
   some concern about mining of the address blocks if it were to be
   public, but again, that is a tradeoff that the community should 
   consider and determine policy accordingly.

   Changing the policy language to drop the bulk whois requirement
   would be a relatively easy change, if there is community support;
   please let me know if you need any assistance in developing an
   appropriate policy proposal.
