Yes, I'd wager everyone on this list has been clear on that for 
sometime.  The point of my comment is that the wording of the 
proposal isn't clear.

For example - "It should be understood that number resources are not 
'sold' under ARIN administration" can be taken two ways - that ARIN 
does not sell the numbers or it can be that once ARIN assigns numbers 
they can be sold from one entity to another.

For example - I can get trinkets from a job that I can then turn 
around and sell on Ebay.  Or I can buy an airline ticket but I can't 
sell that on Ebay.

I suppose that where I got confused is where the proposal talks about 
the numbers are "issued" (not assigned or allocated) to the 
organization and not the POC.  (The admin POC?)

Sarcasm doesn't scale.
