Re: IAB and "private" numbering

Not a good example.
Example registered but not 'routed': 188.8.131.52/8
This particular /8 allocation is described by IANA as "007/8 Apr
95 IANA - Reserved"
in http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space while a whois query
to the ARIN database reveals:
$ whois 184.108.40.206
OrgName: DoD Network Information Center
Address: 3990 E. Broad Street
NetRange: 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168
NetType: Direct Allocation

# ARIN WHOIS database, last updated 2005-11-12 19:10
# Enter ? for additional hints on searching ARIN's WHOIS database.
So in this case who is telling the truth? IANA or ARIN? Is this, as ARIN
data is claiming, an address block that is currently allocated to the US
Dept of Defense via a "direct allocation" (by IANA presumably, but
unspecified in any case), or is this, as IANA data is claiming, an address
block that is currently in the IANA reserved pool and can be allocated to
an RIR in the future. Go figure.
Would we want to change whois output to include the 'pub/priv' flag?
or "conflicting data" flag?
or perhaps I completely missed the mark? :)
