To be clear, ARIN's response is that we cannot proceed when the current POC 
for an address block denies the transfer request, but we would follow any 
legal order you obtain to clarify the situation (i.e. the adjudication of 
contractual documents in contested circumstances is best done by judges.)

Maintaining the status quo in such circumstances is actually a protection 
against unauthorized changes.
