Hi David,

Thanks. As this question speaks to the implementation by staff, it would be challenging for the authors to be able to guarantee as part of the policy. However, the authors’ expectation when writing this proposal was that indeed this would be automated.

The authors also leave this to the implementing staff to decide. However we do believe the policy should have *some* way to get the history, be that via WHOIS port 43, My.AFRINIC or some other interface entirely. Or some combination.
