Sure, but sometimes there are signatories that are not receiving additional resources (though I doubt this
is likely to have occurred since the current fee structure was put in place).

Sure… IMHO, the tradeoff in this case should flow more towards requiring an acknowledgement that
all resources are subject to policy whether issued by ARIN or by one of its predecessors.

Clearly Mike and Bill disagree with me. Likely my employer disagrees with me as well, though we
have not yet discussed the matter.

I don’t expect my position to be in the majority, but it is my position.
