  No, there is not, and such is unlikely to be prepared 
  (at least by ARIN) as each region needs to consider 
  its fees and services independently  and focused on
  on the needs of its community.  Feel free to research
  structures as you see fit, but discussion of actual fees
  in other regions should not be a germane consideration
  in ARIN fee discussions.

I find the Comparative Policy Overview very useful from time to time, but it only covers policy, sometimes it would be useful to compare and contrast the RIRs based on other issues as well.
