On the contrary, it questions the validity and purpose of a swip.
Why is a SWIP necessary for IPv6? When is it necessary? And is necessity dependent on network/allocation size? All questions others have asked.
For all direct allocations , there are several POC's and an Organisation Name & Address, I think validation should be compulosary by ARIN at this level.
The ORG I work for has a min of 4, ADMIN, NOC, ABUSE, TECH per supernet (IPv4 /16 or IPv6 /32).
Beyond this I share your view point ~ "The only thing I give a crap about whois for is that the contact is someone with authority over the IP in question"
Now if "Authority" is defined as IANA>>ARIN>>Direct Allocation>>Realloaction# and the buck stops here. There won't be a need for Reassignment SWIPS on IPv6!
For IPv4 , we can ignore purpose and move straight to the issue of End User service address v.s. End User Legal address/tech contact address vs Service Provider address.
Right now the model is mixed. Most SWIPs are End User Service address but a few are the Service Provider Address or Legal Owner address (hence the bus analogy).
I simple wanted clarity on what is general practice vs what is OBLIGATORY as per ARIN existing policy.

If anyone really cares about the GPS location of a given IP at any time, just dynamically update some DNS LOC records.
This entire thread has gone beyond insane. I can't believe this list is actually discussing where a bus is located in whois. The only thing I give a crap about whois for is that the contact is someone with authority over the IP in question.
