Correct.  No authorization is transferred.  Authorization is a matter of 
ARIN hostmaster decisions about POCs.  PGP and X.509 are simply ways of 
authenticating the sender as one of the POCs.  If a POC wishes to 
_transfer_ or modify authorization, there are existing practices and 
procedures in place whereby the hostmaster and the POC make that change.  
This policy in no way modifies or impacts those existing processes.
