Thanks for the pointer. However, this does not do what I actually want, 
i.e. validating HNA4 values entered by the user (preferably by 

announcable = true

periodically scheduled:
if HNA4_entry announcable 
  if (NOT (IPs in HNA4_entry pingable)) 
    remove HNA4_entry from announcements
  if (IPs in HNA4_entry pingable)
     add HNA4_entry to announcements
