You're assuming that they wouldn't want to change the data in whois  
to show that their 'tenant' is responsible for the network in  
question. As long as the 'freeholder' can reclaim the space when the  
rent isn't paid there isn't a problem for them and they may well want  
to update ARIN's whois server or their own rwhois server.
