Okay, I see the point that it shouldn't be part of the NRPM, and I'd be 
willing to accept that if there were somehow able to be some explicit, 
public policy regarding lame delegations that come directly from ARIN.

Basically, there should be some way for ARIN staff to deal with 
inappropriate delegations where the POC is unresponsive, and that method 
should be public.

Thanks for the proposal.
