Q:  It seems to me that ARIN is stepping over a dollar to pick up a 
dime;  regardless, won't the policy result in all domains on a given IP 
being unreachable if someone blocks, as a result of perceived or real 
abuse, the single IP associated with the abusing domain, thus _at least 
temporarily_ denying service to legitimate customers on that same IP?  I 
admit to ignorance about any blocking techniques which may be available for 
http 1.1.
