	If that is what you are proposing, why are you bringing it to ARIN
	at this time?  What you need to do is to get the members of the
	financial services industry to agree among themselves on a single
	party to represent their interests to the RIR community.  This 
	new entity would have, as its customers, the members of the 
	finacial services industry.  They, presumably, would all be legally
	bound to only use the services of this "stovepipe" services group
	to manage their network addressing requirements.  If such a group
	were to be formed, I have no doubt that ARIN would be happy to 
	work with them to meet the needs of their customers.  I honestly
	do not see anything unique or different here.  It looks very much
	like normal ISP startup to me.
