@ Sure can, but the other options aren't great either.  If ARIN is able

If there are a dozen ARINs then you do not have to

This is one of the reasons why there are now multiple
Root Name Server Confederations. The .ARPA Top Level
Domain is currently delegated by all of those Confederations
to Network Solutions, Inc. The Root Name Server Confederations
have to make sure that this is the consensus of the Internet
Community who the various Confederations represent.
