That is, I agree with ARIN's proposal to let it be opt-in. As long as they can convert trivially and without undue time restrictions, I don't see the problem.
The problem is the high probability of organizations that have not well maintained their contact information paying
the higher fee and not being aware that they have the option of opting in until they have been opted out.
