I think we're still at "polite disagreement". As Benson noted, I'll
point out too that neither of us are lawyers.

It does not actually say what you are representing. In context, what
transpired in Nortel is that ARIN worked out an agreement and it was
codified in the documents voluntarily. Much like Borders, Nortel was
based in a US bankruptcy court. The Borders statement that Borders had
believed that it wasn't necessary to obtain ARIN's approval would
apply to the Nortel proceeding as well. Your response is out of
context and as far as I can discern, not directly citeable, at least
not to people who prefer to be clear and concise in their responses.
There's pretty much no way to intimate what you are stating.

Until there's something useful to respond to, I think this thread is
pretty much beaten to death.
