I don't remember when, but my opposition to this the last time (I
remember) this idea came around went something like this:
1. My membership in ARIN is funding my ability to find out who is
sending me packets. (Assuming no forging of the header.)
2. My membership in ARIN is ensuring my number resources are uniquely
assigned to me.
3. Having to register my contact information is not a privilege or a
right but a requirement and a responsibility.
4. I consider it ARIN's responsibility to keep track of "who" is
assigned "what" resources (even if that means federating
responsibility to other RIRs and NIRs).
Removing information about legitimate resource holders that are not
paying ARIN (whether legitimately not paying or just behind on their
bills) is detrimental to those that are paying.
If the effort is to entice legacy space holders into joining ARIN,
don't try to penalize them. Give them a positive incentive.

The faulty logic here is in identifying who is "receiving services
from ARIN." The relying parties that hit the whois and DNS servers
are not only the holders of number resource but anyone that sends a
packet in the Internet. The vast majority of these people do not
have any number resources registered to them.
