IIRC, that is because Section 4 evolved in-house by ARIN over the years,
whereas Section 6 was (initially) copied en toto from a policy developed
by the RIRs working together.

IMHO, we should use the term LIR to be consistent with other RIRs.  To
make the transition easier, it may be helpful for Section 2 to note that
"LIR" is a superset of the older term "ISP", but "ISP" shouldn't appear
anywhere else in the NRPM.
