ARIN has confirmed receipt of ACSP 2015.18: Sort Order For Utilization 
reports from RESTful Whois [NEW]

Description: Utilization reports from RESTful whois should be sorted in 
IP Numeric order, not ASCII order

e.g. https://whois.arin.net/rest/org/ARIN/pft?s=ARIN

Note that the order displayed is 100, 104, 107, 108, 12, 13, 173, ...

Value to Community: It is very hard to follow the current sort order 
because 224 comes after 1, 10, and 139, but comes before 3, 35, etc.

The desired behavior is akin to the UNIX sort utility invoked as sort 
(current behavior) vs. sort -n (desired behavior).
This suggestion is currently in staff review and response to the 
submitter is pending.
