Note that John said "requests". All the activities you list are completed
actions, which of course are recorded and public.

ARIN has long provided NDAs (cf https://www.arin.net/resources/agreements/)
to cover (among many other things) justification data that is commonly
considered confidential matters for businesses. Off the top of my head,
business plans/projections/territory expansion, customer/usage data,
infrastructure detail, etc.
IMO you're aiming your guns in the wrong direction.
