SWIP update intervals (was: Re: Getting an AS and /18)

...and while we're on the subject of SWIPs, can I get a pet peeve off my 
chest - the fact that RADB entries are updated in minutes, yet it takes 
typically 24 hours or more for a SWIP database change to show up in the 
servers (and the next day to even determine that the change was accepted 
by the servers)? Is there any real reason for ARIN to not be able to 
update the database in near-real-time?
