    The policy is relatively new.. (Spring 2007) and adopted by the ARIN
    community after vetting at 2 meetings.. It's optional, so I can't
    imagine why anyone would propose that ARIN stop collecting this information.

    It may be that it's "newness" helps w/ the accuracy.. only time will tell.
