Thanks for reporting the problem. I propose that we fix the file formats to 
match those of the announcements. Although this won't give us the exact files 
that Arthur released, it will be closer than what we have now. Proposed shell 
script attached; the idea is to execute this shell script on the archive of 
rel3eased files at iana.org.
