>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.
