ARIN Fact Check: GAAP for IANA (ICANN) /8 Assets

"The PPML mailing list is for Internet number resource policy questions"

1. IPv4 /8 ASSETS have become scarce and valuable
2. A /8 allocation could easily be valued like FCC Spectrum
3. A /8 allocation as an ASSET could have a value in excess of $2,000,000,000
4. nnn.IN-ADDR.ARPA Domain Names are used to delegate billion dollar /8 Assets

What is the ARIN Policy for accounting for billion dollar /8 ASSETS
from ICANN (IANA) ?

[Are the /8 Assets shown on the ARIN Balance Sheets ?]
[What did ARIN pay for the /8 assets ?]
[How many /8 assets does ARIN claim to own ?]
