At the moment ripe.e164.arpa is needed they will made a fix for it, making a fix before that moment isn't needed if you ask me.

Why are the DNS provisioning tools for e164.arpa generating data that isn't needed and inserting that data into the DNS? I wonder what will happen if the ITU one day decides that "ripe.e164.arpa" should be delegated to someone....
