Meh… Doable, but expensive.

Which it can’t really do… We don’t even have an agreed upon definition for what constitutes abuse and I
don’t think ARIN belongs in the internet police business.

Which is the current state of things and I suspect you have an uphill battle if you wish to change.

Want to bet that I can’t write an abuse report generator for any standard you choose in less than 24 hours that will not get detected as SPAM by automation?
