The new policy (along with pre-existing text) will read as follows:

6.5.5.1. Reassignment information
Each static IPv6 assignment containing a /47 or more addresses, or
subdelegation
of any size that will be individually announced, shall be registered in the
WHOIS
directory via SWIP or a distributed service which meets the standards set
forth in section 3.2. Reassignment registrations shall include each
client's
organizational information, except where specifically exempted by this
policy.

6.5.5.2. Assignments visible within 7 days
All assignments shall be made visible as required in section 6.5.5.1 within
seven
calendar days of assignment.

6.5.5.3. Residential Subscribers
6.5.5.3.1. Residential Customer Privacy
To maintain the privacy of their residential customers, an organization
with downstream
residential customers may substitute that organization's name for the
customer's name,
e.g. 'Private Customer - XYZ Network', and the customer's street address
may read
'Private Residence'. Each private downstream residential reassignment must
have
accurate upstream Abuse and Technical POCs visible on the WHOIS record for
that
block.

6.5.5.4  Registration Requested by Recipient
If the downstream recipient of a static assignment of /64 or more addresses
requests
publishing of that assignment in ARIN's registration database, the ISP must
register
that assignment as described in section 6.5.5.1.
