Thanks Phranque. I actually looked around on ARIN and did a search for the file and just "delegated" and got squat. Not like it harmed them to maintain that file as it was already in place. Typical example of bureaucratic nonsense designed to cause problems for everyone except the committee that had nothing better to do than write that press release and discontinue the update of that file.
Based on the date of the press release it explains why the last day it was automatically downloaded was 8.13.2013 too :)
All the other delegated files from all the other sites are working just fine, it's just ARIN that has to be a PITA.
