CRISP is merely smoke and mirrors at present. There is the whois format used by all the other RIRs which is, I believe, based on RPSL. RIPE even makes their server freely available. Assuming that there is some kind of database behind SWIP and whois, it should not be that difficult for ARIN to switch to using the RIPE format for displaying answers to whois queries. --Michael Dillon
