1) According to the policy manual, it appears that SWIP is the tool for an 
ISP to document the address assignments made to its customers, so that 
when more address space is requested, ARIN can determine qualifications.

2) Although not directly expressed in the policy manual, it is also a tool 
for operators to contact the administrators of blocks of address space 
when there is an abuse event.

Very few ISP's have come back for anything more than their original /32 
allocation of v6, so that purpose might not be as important in the future.

It is still handy for contact with a specific network's administrator.
