ARIN already clearly delegates to them, so that's done.

If an organization wants to be responsible for their customers' camel
porn, then... they can call themselves (content-responsible) enterprises
rather than (common-carrier) ISPs.
I guess it's a feature of IPv6 that it enables organizations to not be
network neutral, if they do not call themselves networks!
(I wish that .net had been delegated to IANA/ARIN back in the early
1990s.. No ASN/-ARIN handle, no foo.net...)
