Organizations with legacy address blocks may update their point of contact
information (in fact, they can now do it online via ARIN Online, probably 
why we have more than 20,000 ARIN Online accounts... :-)  Remember, we are
actively requesting all organizations to update their Point of Contact (POC)
information via electronic reminders.  More information about this program 
and its progress was given at the Atlanta meeting:

ARIN doesn't discuss any organizations number resources in public due to privacy 
issues; if you are a valid contact for the resources you may contact the 
Registration Services Helpdesk <https://www.arin.net/resources/help_desk.html>

All transfers must meet the community developed and adopted policies at the 
time of the request, and I've outlined those mechanisms which presently apply.
