Jeff - 
 
 Please suggest your preferred means of IRR authentication to the ARIN 
 suggestion process: <https://www.arin.net/participate/acsp/index.html>
 Alternatively, point to a best practice document from the operator 
 community for what should be done here. ARIN's work plan is very much
 driven by community input, so that's what is needed here.

Thanks!
