What are people's experiences with the various RIRs discussion of these
I believe sometimes (though could be mistaken) they consider these matters
Perhaps there are official RIR policies stated on how they handle such.
It can be frustrating I'm sure.
For the situation you describe, I'd be inclined to say that if the RIR's
posted registration matches what you've got and has been so for a while,
that ought to stand.
