The "ARIN person" does not work in a vacuum.  If there is discrimination in
the United States and Canada, there is legal recourse on the part of the
spurned.  (Sometimes it's too easy to sue, but that's a discussion for
another place.)  The IEEE and ACM are known for sponsoring equal
opportunity.

I mentioned Kim because of a desirable feature already discussed to death
in this list:  continuity.  Kim has been doing this, so she know the ropes.
The current proposal has her working for the Registry.  I don't have a
problem with this, myself.
