>From the document, the problem statement appears to be that CKN23-ARIN is
worrisome to staff because:
1) The resources are targets for hijacking;
2) Erodes community confidence in Whois accuracy; and
3) Unhappy POCs from pre-1998 who haven't updated records.
I'll be blunt and say 2) and 3) prompt no sympathy from me, and are not
valid problems, in my opinion.
In response to 1), I would think an analysis of all historical and known
hijack targets, mapped to routed vs. unrouted at the time of hijacking,
would be a good next step. This work ensures the problem statement is
valid, and that CKN23-ARIN is the impetus for picking the block, and not
just simply a lack of a route announcement in a typical DFZ.
