Section 9. Property rights are immaterial to the provision of whois
and dns services yet the registrant is asked to quit any such claims
as a condition of the LRSA.
Section 8. Annual audit. Routine auditing of the registrant's use of
IP addresses is immaterial to the provision of whois and dns services.
Section 7. Current and future policies. Compliance with tomorrow's
NRPM is immaterial to the provision of whois and dns services.
Section 14e. Nothing in my "summary" requires ARIN to discontinue
whois and rdns services should the registrant decide to stop paying.
14e not only requires ARIN to discontinue services, it requires ARIN
to revoke the resources, putting them into a process resulting in
reallocation to someone else.
And that's just the large and blatantly obvious ways (to anyone with
basic English comprehension skills) in which the LRSA is nothing like
my "summary." Lots more devils in the details of individual sentences.
