This is patently false for at least the following reasons:

1.	Fee structure is determined by the BoT with input from the ARIN

2.	x-large entities are NOT the majority of ARIN members and do
	not get any more votes than x-small entities per Org.

If a sufficiently large portion of the membership supported a change
to the fee structure, I am quite sure it could be accomplished.  I am  
sure that you could gain the support of enough of the x-small, small,  
and large organizations as well as the non-subscriber members to
get such a  fee structure through, but, it is quite possible to make  
changes with zero support from the x-large entities if you can convince
the rest of the membership that it is a good idea.
