We have no problem changing the registration records in the 
ARIN Whois in accordance with the community-developed policy.
To the extent a resource holder is using the resources (even
if underutilized), it has been our practice not to make policy
that would hinder their use of the resources.  This is not the
case when a party has stopped using the number resources, and 
then attempts to attempts to fraudulently transfer them.
