this is commonly held up as a reason that getting allocations is hard,
but the infrastructure micro-allocations are never to be seen in the
global table.

It woudl be super nice if some kind RIR people could comment here, I
believe in the ARIN region all you NEED to do is provide a spreadsheet
showing your utilization, checking for the routes in the 'DFZ'
(bmanning-summons) isn't relevant for additional requests.

see previous comment, I believe this is a red-herring.

you still have to provide SWIP, RWHOIS or some other accounting of the
usage (spreadsheet/csvfile seems to be historically acceptable)
