Last I looked this was not a condition of ARIN membership. Are you 
suggesting a policy that all ARIN members must share the same opinions?

Nothing. There is nothing to stop them from doing what they have done.

back and a precedent is set.

Sorry, there really is nothing that ARIN or anyone else can do to stop 

>(I'd love to just grab an entire Class A to myself..)

Go ahead. There is nothing to stop you from doing this as long as you 
don't plan to use it on the global Internet. I know of a company that uses 
1/8, 2/8, 3/8, 4/8, 5/8, 6/8, 7/8 and 8/8 without registering them.

We need to be realistic here. ARIN is not the Internet police.
