"leasing" the addresses

Jim,

"Leasing" would imply that ARIN owns the addresses for which it is
providing registration services. As you have stated in other mail,
ARIN (like RIPE and APNIC) is there to help insure that addresses used
on the Internet are unique. A registrar is a steward of the resource
being managed, not the owner of the resource. This is an important
distiction.
