ARIN could afford to do that, even if it never gets paid in 
many such situations. As long as the resources are in active
use, then ARIN is fulfilling its purpose.

It also avoids the sticky situation of what to do after revocation.
ARIN can'te exactly prevent the organization from continuing to
use the resources, and if the resources were allocated to another
organization, then they would be embroiled in a technology and
legal tussle to be able to use them.
