"leasing" the addresses


"Above all else, it should be stressed that ARIN will not be
"selling" IP numbers. All requests for IP address space must
meet pre-determined criteria currently followed by all IP
registries [ref: RFC2050]. These criteria will be the basis for
all allocations. The fees that ARIN will collect do not represent
charges for the IP numbers. The registration fees are for the
registration services rendered by ARIN - review and verification
of requests and reassignment information, help desk support,
allocation guidelines, whois and other information servers, service, record upkeep and database maintenance -
and will support the administration and operational requirements of
running the registry and managing the IP address space for the
assigned territories."


Why not just say you are "leasing" the addresses and
skip the mumbo jumbo....?

What is the point of the above ?
