It adds hard to parse extraneous information to simple objects. The organization object for a very large organization would become unmanageable and unintelligible quickly. I would much rather like to see a new inetnum and inet6num object status "INFORMATIONAL" that only requires authorization of the immediately larger enclosing inet(6)num object, and doesn't represent an assignment or allocation at all. Such objects can then be used to redirect technical, administrative and abuse contacts to the proper places, as well as present their own remarks and descriptions. This solution would cover PI, PA and all other styles of address blocks equally well. I know this has been suggested many times before, but I still think it would be a much more elegant solution to this problem. Yours, -- Aleksi Suhonen
