My point was more along the lines of "this is third party information".
It's one thing for an ISP's customer list to be compromised. At least in
a lawsuit a customer cannot claim that the ISP had no right to store the
data. But I worry that for ARIN the argument would come down to that,
does ARIN have more liability because it would have to make a
non-obvious argument as to why it needed to possess such data..

just me being a worry-wart I guess.
