Speaking only for myself...

I think it is unfair to characterize any ARIN revocation, reallocation,
or reassignment that has taken place as capricious.

To the best of my knowledge, ARIN has always had very good reasons
supported by policy developed by the community for each and
every resource that has been revoked, reallocated, or reassigned
with the possible exception of some accidental duplicates, in which
case, what was done was an attempt to minimize and disruption
to the parties involved, usually with the cooperation and consent
of the parties.
