Hi John,

So any violation of RFC2050 is a violation of ARIN policy and could allow a 
revokation under section12?
Does the IETF write ARIN policy?
The NRPM is pretty clear that if you don't pay your ARIN bill, addresses can 
be revoked.
It can be that clear about revokation for failing to maintain the original 
allocation criteria, too.
I'm with Owen, in that this looks like an oversight and should be corrected 
in the NRPM if that's what the community wants.
