This is a very important observation. I would rather
see a policy that defines the purpose and scope of
ARIN's routing registry. That policy could include
text like the following:

> ARIN will collect an optional field in all IPv4 and IPv6 address block
> transactions (allocation and assignment requests, reallocation and
> reassignment actions, transfer and experimental requests). This
> additional field will be used to record a list of the ASes that the user
> permits to originate address prefixes within the address block.
