There seem to be partial records going back to at least SRI-NIC, and
maybe even further back when ISI/IANA handled registry duties itself.
When there is a big enough dispute, you hear about the registries
searching through archive tapes and even boxes of old papers.  Sometimes
they find the missing record, sometimes they don't.  But there doesn't
seem to be any centralized archive.  Nor does it appear to be easy to
access the records that do exist.
