Hi Marty,

That's a fantastic idea. But instead of deregistering the block (which
would add chaos to the process for the right-org-wrong-POC case) do
two things:

1. Feed the fact of the NACK back to the ISP with a message that the
POC reports a registration mistake (requests contact for correction)
and a gentle reminder that they are asked to publish accurate records
as a condition of retaining allocations. Mistakes will be made. How
will the folks who made the mistake find out if they don't get any

2. Use the data to build a stochastic model that separates routine
bookkeeping error from orgs who are more on the negligence/fraud end
of SWIP management.
