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.
