The best way for ARIN to prevent a resource it assigns being
considered as assets, is
to make sure the agreements under which they are allocated and
maintained are solid.

Perhaps there should just be a  one or two-line disclaimer in the ARIN
WHOIS listing for every   registration,  in addition to the TOU

"* The following is operational contact information that has been
reported to ARIN by a subscriber assigned or allocated internet number
resources as required by ARIN region Number Resource Policies.  The
listed contact is not the owner or registrant of the listed number
resources.   ARIN does not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of WHOIS
contact details."

The agreements ARIN requires resource holders sign should solidify --
that the allocation and assignment of number resources do not convey
any permanent ownership,  do not confer any permanent or transferrable
right or privilege to shared or exclusive use,  do not confer any
other rights that can be transferred,   do not provide any rights that
ARIN cannot revoke,   that  each allocation must be renewed every year
with payment of fees,   and  ARIN  may cancel any allocation, or
refuse the renewal or transfer of any allocation.
