And that *is* enforcement of ARIN policy.  In the example, number resources are being used in a manner agreed upon by both the original resource holder and the new resource holder.  What you propose is to override their choice with ARIN's policy.  This action would possibly incite users of ARIN's database to collude against a competitor.  Good luck defending that behavior in a court of law.
