For the allocation report, are you looking for something very different from an ordinary IANA registry? Would additional granularity in the IPv4 Address Space registry be sufficient for the authors?

I am not sure exactly what the authors expect IANA to do before issuing a public notice confirming RIR eligibility but it is probably worth pointing out that IANA does not have privileged access to the RIRs' registration databases. So an IANA notice probably does not hold any more weight than a declaration of eligibility issued by an RIR, or for that matter any interested observer. We can do it but we aren't more authoritative than anyone else. If you want a third party statement confirming eligibility I would suggest requiring the statement of eligibility to be issued by a firm of auditors with a good reputation.
