That makes sense....  if an organization signed an agreement with
another organization stating they would transfer resources,  and they
fail or refuse to do so, for whatever reason,   then no resources have
been transferred, and an agreement between third parties is not an
authorization to ARIN.....  the authorization can be made by the
holder deciding to comply, or being compelled to comply,  but ARIN
lacks jurisdiction to mediate,

ARIN shouldn't form an opinion about the requirements of internal
agreements between third parties,  that might or might not be
enforceable,  or how breaches will be cured, in case of enforcement.

...Just in the same way that some creditor you have a dispute with,
who has not had a judgement entered against you, can't just take a
signed sales contract  to your bank, without permission,    and expect
to use that to withdraw dollars from your bank account or  gain access
to your safety deposit box  to remove items, they feel the signed
agreement entitles them to.
