No, they spelled it the way the British do instead of the Americans.

This shouldn't be a surprise, given that Europe, in general, considers British to be "proper English" and American to be a bastardization of the British language.

Indeed, it kind of goes towards your point about differences in language, culture, timezones, etc. that the RIRs were created to serve. One could even say that spelling it the way you expected would be a violation of what you referred to as the primary reason for regionalizing the IR functions.

> Needs testing, in and of itself, is not the issue.  What is at issue is what ARIN does when a transfer occurs (and they have, do, and will occur) outside of "justified" need.  As a _registry_, I believe ARIN's role (as with IANA and all other RIRs) is to maintain accurate records.

You've made your position clear. The majority of the ARIN community does not appear to agree with you. Can you provide any evidence to support your claim that they "have, do, and will occur outside of justified need"?

So far, this is a popular refrain among those that seek to eliminate the stewardship role from the RIRs, but I have yet to see anyone present hard evidence that a significant amount of this has, does, or will occur.
