When would the LIR-PARTITIONED "status:" value be used?

Sometimes LIRs need to distribute part of their allocation to a particular location and allow maintenance of that range by their subsidiary. The new "status:" value allows the LIR to create a more specific level object with the subsidiary's maintainer in it. By doing this, it allows the subsidiary to administer the assigned inetnum objects, without giving the subsidiary control over the whole LIR allocation. It is not a sub-allocation.
