Hi Andrew,

I'd prefer not to see ARIN leading that effort but I'd point out that
this policy change creates a framework which could lead to such
standardization. If the URL is HTTP, automation could request the URL
with a particular user agent string which, if the server supports it,
would return machine-readable instructions for generating and
transmitting a report instead of the normal human-readable ones.
