As best I can tell from ARIN documents, ISP still are supposed to SWIP

still widely practiced these days? Especially among smaller ISPs?
AFAIK, it is still required, but my own experience has been that some do, some do only in preparation for their next IP space request (i.e. fall behind on swips, then to a big catch-up before approaching ARIN for more space), and some just don't. I have to wonder how that last group gets more space out of ARIN, since they don't follow the rules.
