I have one comment..

Having had recent discussions on the current policies, it is important 
that all policies have synergy..

In ARIN-2016-5, we speak of..

"Efficient utilization of at least 50% of cumulative IPv4
address blocks already assigned to them"

I believe this should be extended to also include that the current 
registrant MUST be compliant with existing policies regarding the proper 
use of SWIP or 'rwhois' for any IP space they currently operate, insofar 
as that space is relegated to other parties.

It should also require that all existing POC information is correct and 
up to date.  And if they have a reference to a 'rwhois' server, it 
should be operating, functional and accurate.

Even some of the largest provider(s) do not seem to conform to ARIN 
guidelines, and the transfer process should not be started, unless 
current networks are in compliance.. Not to pick on Time Warner, it was 
just recently reported to me, so fresh in my mind..


NetRange: -
NetName:        RCSW
NetHandle:      NET-97-76-0-0-1
Parent:         NET97 (NET-97-0-0-0-0)
NetType:        Direct Allocation
Organization:   Time Warner Cable Internet LLC (RCSW)
Comment:        Allocations for this OrgID serve Road Runner commercial 
customers out of the Austin, TX and Tampa Bay, FL RDCs.
Found a referral to rwhois.rr.com:4321.

connect: Connection refused

So, at it simplest, I would see that amended to read..

"Accurate record keeping, and efficient utilization of .."
