+1. Especially when the transfers involve addresses for which no RSA has 
been signed. Either ARIN should stop maintaining a registry of 
pre-ARIN-assigned no-RSA-associated addresses altogether, or ensure that 
such a registry is relatively accurate.

I understand that ARIN *can* decide to pretend that it somehow prevents 
the transfers from happening by refusing to record changes in 
"ownership" that are done outside of policy (and certainly has the right 
to refuse to record the changes, what with there being no agreement with 
the parties and all), but I don't see how that furthers the goal of 
maintaining an accurate registry, which I presume is why ARIN includes 
legacy addresses in its registry at all.
