Additionally, your ability to participate in ARIN, including
providing feedback on consultations such as this, and the
basic overhead of the organization (e.g. running the annual
elections and holding required meetings) are not costs that
are necessarily variable based on address space held, and may
actually be better recovered on a per member/organization basis.
Obviously, the fees do not need to be directly tied to the costs
