I call BS on this one. If you say "maybe even in the same RFC" then you
clearly don't know where this statement is or exactly what was written
or in what context. In fact if it is not in the same RFC then it is clearly
not "at the same time". 

If it is your misinformed opinion, then please say so instead of pretending
to quote from the IETF bible.

The fact is that I believe your analysis is flawed and is based on false premises
and probably riddled with other problems. I think that you simply misunderstand
the issues and have jumped to too many conclusions without detailed analysis
and fact checking.

You can hold whatever opinions you want, but ARIN is under no obligation to
act on any of them.
