that's true, I've made the same experiences. Mostly we request an own maintainer for a customer when we request a new PI network, but the majority of the users hasn't the knowledge or they don't want to build up knowledge to create or to update the RIPE database...

We've done PI for clients on their own maintainer if that's what they want, but creating extra maintainers "for the sake of it" seems pointless because half the PI users may not understand how to use their maintainer anyway!
