[arin-tech-discuss] Does it make sense to forego RWhois and move to RESTful API for all customer assignments?

Is there a place I can see if this has already been proposed?  I found 
https://www.arin.net/participate/acsp/index.html, but I can't tell if 
there's suggestions there that haven't been confirmed already.

We'd like to switch over to using the API (instead of sending tons of 
emails), and having one customer object per actual customer seems like 
the way to go.
