Hi Jimmy,

There are a lot of important functions that ARIN performs that are not
codified in the NRPM.  For instance, bulk dumps of WHOIS and the
requirement for annual validation of POCs is in the NRPM, but the
technical details of how ARIN is to run a WHOIS server are not.

The NRPM does not say anything about ip6.arpa, yet somehow it works fine.

Could you provide some thoughts to back up why it ought to stay?

Speaking as secondary shepherd for the proposal, we value your input.
