[ Thanks, Leo, for expanding ]

A large part of my function is dealing with costs and I don't  
differentiate size. I don't consider it a mere $1250, I consider it as  
"currently acceptable" as a cost of doing business based on how ARIN  
funds itself (through these fees) and what they have reported back to  
us in the yearly financial report.

How exactly are these costs impacting you outside of being bundled  
with your transit cost?
