Thanks John,

So to summarize: I would find it difficult to be a repeat offender,
but as long as I dot my i's cross my t's and content myself with just
one grab, draft policy 2011-1 as presently written would enable me to
buy a Lexus by raiding the free pool and more or less immediately
selling the results out-region... to someone with no access to a free
pool operating under a much more permissive needs-based justification
than ARIN requires. And with little risk: at worst really just the
loss of the $4500 allocation fee.
