What's being asked for here is what a lot of businesses might consider
proprietary or trade secret type information.  There are few secrets on the
Internet, we all know, once the network is in place, but plans for expansion
and new business ought to be confidential until the day the circuit is
turned on.

It is the case that several regulatory agencies ask for similar information
when an organization requests allocation of spectrum.  For example,
in the US the FCC asks for an "independent" engineering review  for several 
classes of spectrum allocation.


The Internic(s) has no legal status as a regulatory agency.  Specificly
seeing as no one owns the Internet to regulate it, this is a completely
bogus point.
