For those that feel that ARIN can never keep unconnected networks from
being routed globally, I wonder if you'd take the time to read the SIDR
work from IETF.

Consider what would happen if ARIN were to issue non-connected network
space, and bind it's use to a specific (dummy) ASN.  Once secure, the
public ("Internet") BGP system would never accept an announcement from
anyone attempting to announce that prefix from another ASN.

If some group of enterprises needed to do (I)BGP on their non-connected
networks (such as for VPN use), they would either create an exception to
SBGP, or they would introduce a second SIDR root CA into their routers.
