Why doesn't IANA operate a whois server?
Why don't they publish a more detailled explanation field in each IANA allocation record so that they can explain the precise status of each block?
Why doesn't IANA and the RIRs collectively get off their butts and actually make an "authoritative IP address allocation directory" one of their goals? And why don't they do all this with some 21st century technology?
A new system based on IRIS protocol (XML based using BEEP as transport) will be in place in the future that will work better as a comprehensive directory.
