I would say that was mistaken over-eagerness to be helpful.
I have to come to think that was a mistake (that is just my personal opinion, as a user of the system) because it removes the source one step from the system, as the data is scooped from IANA's ITAR. That lead to the issue with the .pr TLD without any fault from .pr's side. Even if the data can be "trusted", as one can trust IANA to have done things properly, the one-step-removed nature of it is not good.
