Indeed, prop 133 (along with 134) is intended to address exactly the notions Tony espoused.  Specifically, it leads to a system of overt consent by the governed - leaving non-consenters to find alternatives of their own to ARIN's registry services.  It's not clear to me how the content of Tony's message leads to opposition to prop 133.
