Yes, I would like to know about that as well.  We have reported 
companies with questionable 'assignment' information, or questionable 
usage, or poor compliance with SWIP/rWhois policies, which hasn't seemed 
to affect them getting new IP Space..

And the idea of "REASSIGN SIMPLE" is really non-sense..

Again, use of a public resource, IMHO should have correct public 
information.  And it isn't onerous for any one to do this, and makes it 
harder for ARIN and others to see if the usage is 'fictional'.

Again, this seems to be a problem with enforcement.. now and in the 
future, I object to simply 'removing' stale data, or any changes in the 
policy to that effect, when we need to improve accuracy.
