Not really commenting on this discussion (although I find it quite  
amusing), but:

Um.  Where are these ARIN meetings in which these "hundreds if not  
thousands" of companies are participating?  The ARIN meetings I go to  
(and the e-mail discussions I see) have the same few dozen of people,  
most of which are funded by their very large corporations to attend  
said meetings.

I will also note that it is the very large corporations who have the  
lawyers who can pummel ARIN into the ground if policies change in a  
way they don't particularly like (regardless of the merit or legality  
of those changes).  Welcome to business in the USA...
