Without commenting on the content, I believe the word needed here is
"inalienable". For example, a peasant in the middle ages had the right to
farm his plot as long as he gave the required share to the lord of the
manor, but not the right to sell or rent his plot to another. His rights
could not be transferred (other than by inheiritance), hence inalienable.
I believe this is analogous to the situation ARIN seeks to describe,
unless ARIN seeks to retain the right to recall allocations arbitrarily.
