I just don't see how they opt-out under this policy. ARIN still provides
the uniqueness (and can assign the addresses to someone else if they
believe that something improper has happened, see the repeated veiled
threats about ARIN simply updating the database it controls)... ARIN
still provides the reverse DNS service... ARIN still provides the
pointer to the whois service.
Without actually moving the block in question from ARIN to another RIR
that doesn't yet exist (and cannot be created using the ARIN PDP), I'm
not sure how there's any improvement under this policy.
