No.  There are different POC contacts defined in the Policy manual for  
a reason.  They are not identical and equivalent.  There is one which  
specifically should be used, and it was not.  There are several which  
are clearly inappropriate, and they were used.

Upon re-reading and further discussion offline I (now) believe that  
the current policy correctly addresses this matter, and no policy  
change is required. It was an operational mistake on ARIN's part.   
Obviously this matter may return here later.
