If you expect ARIN policy to be malleable to support your technological 
choices, then it is only fair if the community expects the reverse.

As others have pointed out this stick is to big to take seriously, but 
other wording that made the underlying carrier responsible for the 
(under)utilization of the third parties while interacting with ARIN may 
actually work.

Team the two concepts/proposals together and I could support both.
