Hopefully, ARIN will block them from acquiring more address space (should they need it), pending functional SWIP or rwhois.
As the owner of a small provider, I found SWIPs far preferable to rwhois, at least with the rwhois code I found available. I really don't have a problem with folks choosing one or the other, but if you're going to choose to use rwhois, then monitor the service and make sure it's working.
