You were identifying ARIN and the ASO. ARIN is not the ASO. As a
significant component of the ASO, of course ARIN has a large role in
global policy development. ARIN can make proposals etc. But ARIN
doesn't *decide global policies*; and it doesn't *make* global policies
-- the other RIRs are equal players, and their interests don't always
coincide with ARINs (though certainly all the registries have an
interest in reclaiming space).
