There are a lot of db info consumers: https://www.ripe.net/analyse/statistics/ripe-database/ripedb-queries It works well enough that as a data consumer, I don't particularly need to see massive changes to it. It could be revolutionised and that might be interesting, but drastically changing the data model is a lot of work for all parties. Nick
