Hmmm, there might be an obstacle due to lack of inetnum support in ARIN:

However there is good news: the last paragraph of RFC 9092 section 3
suggests a workaround specific to ARIN:

	"Currently, the registry data published by ARIN are not the same
	RPSL as that of the other registries (see [RFC7485] for a survey
	of the WHOIS Tower of Babel); therefore, when fetching from ARIN
	via FTP [RFC0959], WHOIS [RFC3912], the Registration Data Access
	Protocol (RDAP) [RFC9082], etc., the "NetRange" attribute/key
	MUST be treated as "inetnum", and the "Comment" attribute MUST
	be treated as "remarks".

Perhaps you insert a "Comment: Geofeed https://xxx/geofeed.csv" in the
place where NetRange blobs come from?

Kind regards,
