Well in the system I developed we basically used it for all of the 
above since we needed the same sort of information to justify our 
assignments to the APNIC when we came back for more. The system could 
identify an infrastructure request so it could be more lenient with 
respect to requesting second opinions but our customers would have 
been unimpressed if there was one set of rules for them and another 
for us. Of course the internal clients (marketing :-) didn't like it 
when you said no but that's why you have someone further up the chain 
than a low level NOCer making the decisions.
