I agree. It is not all that difficult to build such a system but
making sure the people using it properly understand what information
they need from the customer to ensure that the assignment is properly
justified is another matter. I don't think this is a task for entry
level NOC staff where churn might be high and understanding low. They
are probably also not that good at telling the customer no, they are
more interested in the customer going away (happy).

I would be cautious about handing your address-space management to
entry-level staff. It is more than a trivial bookkeeping function.
Institute an auditing/sanity-check process.
