Lost as in not displayed to queries or lost as in nobody knows
what's portable anymore and the canonical data is destroyed?
I can't imagine the latter is the case, but your assertion is of
sufficient mangnitude to demand clarification.
The data was never lost or destroyed. The portable/non-portable data
is kept in a comments field and during the conversion that field was
not tagged (for some reason) to show up in WHOIS. As soon as we realized
the problem it was fixed.
Individual addresses that are reassigned from an ISPs block are not
usually tagged portable or non-portable, it is the parent block that
states whether addresses in that block are portable or not.
