ACSP Suggestion 2007.15: WHOIS Server Doesn't Accept CIDR Style Queries

I've noticed that ARIN is the only one of the RIRs that has a whois server that doesn't accept CIDR style queries. For example:

: dlw@corp:575 ; whois -h
% [ node-1]
% Whois data copyright terms

inetnum: -

: dlw@corp:576 ; whois -h

CIDR queries are not accepted

No match found for

CIDR queries really should work. Thanks!
