Well, IANA's registry claims data from 4/95 and ARIN's registry

So in this case who is telling the truth? IANA or ARIN?
Nah. The right answer is to synchronize the data somehow. The data
could either be replicated or a referral could be provided. Not
Would we want to change whois output to include the 'pub/priv' flag?
or "conflicting data" flag?
I think I can state authoritatively (:-)) that the IANA is aware of
(at least some of) the discrepancies and has address registry data
synchronization on its priority list.
