Once a week is good. ARIN has a daily issued feed but that's a bit

I agree the actual allocated/assigned ranges need not be disclosed; I do 
however think that sharing the names of (applicant) organizations will 
help with responsibility and possibly reduce the occurrence of phony 
applications (if there have been any).
