why don’t you also incorporate a BCP-38 check in that too?  caida’s even written the code for you [1] so there is little for staff to do.
and, how about making sure that they don’t have any listings in open-[dns|ntp|snmp|chargen]-project ?

after all, if they can’t look after the space they already have, why should they get more?
