I agree with you, to quote a little further:

   This document does not describe private Internet address space and
   multicast address space.  It also does not describe regional and
   local refinements of the global rules and guidelines.

   This document can be considered the base set of operational
   guidelines in use by all registries.  Additional guidelines may be
   imposed by a particular registry as appropriate.

It would seem to me that 3180 could be interpreted as "Additional
guidelines" and thus I don't see a 2050 problem.

I think the bigger problem here is, what is ARIN to do?  Reading
3180 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3180.html) there's no registry
function.  You take a prefix, you add your AS number.  Boom, done.
There's nothing for ARIN to allocate, track, report on or otherwise
administer.

Since the purpose of a policy proposal is to change the NRPM, and
this references no sections of the NRPM, what specifcally do you
want ARIN to do?  Perhaps if you rephrased in the form "Insert into
section x.y.z of the NRPM the following text:" it would be more
clear.
