ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2014.11. The 
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion remains 
open and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *

The netmod template reverts to manual processing by hostmaster when the 
prefix length matches the allocation. For example, ARIN allocates a /18 
and you have swip'd out the entire /18. It seems the automation doesn't 
understand which record to remove (the parent or the subdelegation)

Suggestion: Change the netmod template and process to accept submissions 
to Modify or Remove by Net Handle. When you swip the prefix it has a 
unique nethandle, separate from the parent allocation. This should be 
sufficient to tell which record should be modified. If you don't want to 
allow modification or removal of the direct allocation with a Netmod, 
and if all direct allocation NetHandles end in -01, it should be easy 
enough to exclude those.

This would cut down the number of templates that have to be manually 


We agree the process related to your suggestion can be improved. We plan 
to make the improvements you suggest in parallel with other SWIP related 
enhancements. We currently have this work prioritized under the title 
"SWIP Easy" on our planned functionality page.


Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion 
Process. Your suggestion will remain open until implemented.
