ARIN will do whatever the community directs (to our best determination) based 
on adopted policy and our mission. To be specific in this case, the current 
operational practice for implementing our regional nature is to ensure that 
an organization has a legal presence in the ARIN region (they must show some 
type of legal documentation that shows they are authorized to do business in 
the US such as state incorporation documents, etc.).  Additionally, they must 
plan on using the address space within the ARIN region. 

At the ARIN Public Policy Meeting this week, Leslie Nobile (ARIN's Director of 
Registration Services) raised this same matter in the Policy Experience Report 
an area for the community to consider for possible possible development work 
(slides are available online; pages 7 & 8 discuss this particular issue -
To the extent that the community has a better idea on how ARIN staff should 
handle potential requests from other regions, policy proposals are welcome.

I hope this helps in considering the matter!
