You pay because by jumping through the hoops and paying the fee you
get IP addresses. The rest is more or less a "legal fiction." It's
useful but not sacrosanct. Make no mistake: that we pay ARIN for IP
addresses is a correct description in every other respect.

However we may architect it for legal purposes, the dog still wags the
tail: we buy IP addresses from ARIN and receive the rest of the
services in the package (whether we want to or not!)
