While prop 136 doesn't directly call for the formation of a registrar system or post-allocation services, I admit that it does imply the opportunity.  However, there is no requirement that "replacement directory services" are provided by a third party - I imagine that the address holder can provide a directory service for themselves.

Thanks for your clarification, John.  Perhaps I understand you correctly now.  To rephrase what I hear you saying:  As a result of RIR recognition by ICANN per ICP-2, ARIN has a responsibility to apply address management policy to all organizations within their region, and is not permitted to allow anybody to opt-out of that policy.  Have I captured your meaning correctly?
