      Please note that the expected impact is extremely minimal to APNIC
      Networks.  All APNIC reverse /8s are already delegated to the APNIC
      nameservers.

      Goal:
      
      Reduce the size of the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone file. This file will be reduced
      in size by only containing name servers for /8 networks.
      
      
      Completed Steps:
      
      Apr 2001 - Established relationships with 2 companies to provide
      independent server networks for all ARIN IN-ADDR zone files.
      
      Jun 2001 - Released a new IN-ADDR.ARPA zone file generator to correct
      existing erroneous data.
      
      
      Next Step:
      
      July 9, 2001 - ARIN will begin revising the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone for those 
      direct /8 delegations to ARIN.  These /8 zone files will be serviced by
      the two ARIN nameserver networks.  These changes will not affect the
      performance of reverse lookup in any of the IPv4 Address space.
      
      Please direct any questions to inaddr at arin dot net.
