Jeffrey - 
  There have been numerous transfers of number resources over the years,
  both via NRPM 8.2 (M&A) and via NRPM 8.3 (Specified Transfer).  Many 
  of these involve contractual documents and sometimes such documents
  can be quite large and involve many aspects having nothing to do with
  the registration of Internet number resources.  All of these transfers
  have something in common - the current registrant or legal successor
  concurred with the transfer of the number resources. 

  You have a different circumstance, and suggesting that ARIN should assert 
  itself as the rightful interpreter of your contractual dispute fails to 
  recognize the very nature of contractual agreements (which lie inherently
  within the legal system when disputed.)  Not only is it not desirable to 
  change this fact, but it's also not within the power of the ARIN community.
