I think that's one of the benefits of PGP: no direct relationship is
needed between ARIN and the POC. If the POC has a key, and the key has
been signed within a certain number of steps, you're good to go. The
X.509 implementation required that the POC and ARIN enter into a
heavy-weight contractual relationship. I think the numbers speak for
themselves, on the success of that experiment.
