That makes sense, thanks.

I am a little confused about this... Is the intent to simply leave stale resources in the DB once a resource is reclaimed? In this case, I created two test POCs and one ORG while validating the code prior to production roll-out. Do these simply go away with the next round of POC/ORG validating e-mails sent by ARIN? Also, to bring up the expected use issue again, is this the way I should be handling detail reassigns and reallocates?

Thanks as always.
