it's also probably worth stating that parts of 198.32/16 are never
routed anywhere on the Internet (here comes bill to tell me 'who's
Internet?' .....). Some is in use on private networks, some is in use
at exchange points and not routed outside the immediate peers.

Most times, as I recall, epnet does a decent job of keeping the whois
data or rdns data updated though, for things in use. (though possibly
not for private uses)
