It is better that listings be temporary as IP addresses can be
reassigned. There is nothing in that recommendation that prevents
the operator from relisting the IP address. Such a recommendation
prompts the operator to review the listings for correctness.
This ignores whether ownership of the address space changed. In some
cases, IP addresses can not be handled effectively on an individual
basis when network stewardship proves ineffective. This issue is
evolving along with introduction of IPv6. Let the games been?

Agreed. There also remains a small percentage of subscribers that
query address octets in the wrong order. Such problems may require
specialized services to ensure proper subscriber configuration or just
greater dependence on Darwin. : )
