per the subject line, i think that this is something that afrinic’s db
could auto-append.

this basically means that the field:
“changed: <user at domain> <date>”

would no longer need to be filled out by the requestor, and afrinic
would auto-populate this, based on :
# mail headers,
# datetime,
and other relevant bits that can be discussed further here. i can’t
see this breaking anything, but welcome additional discussion.

i’m also not aware of a formal way to request these sorts of changes,
so, if there actually *is* one, other than suggestions posted here,
please educate me.
