Even so...  the  /12  blocks or other covering aggregats are specifically
not for ARIN's internal use  ---  ARIN  is entrusted with stewardship to
manage allocation,  and  ARIN has no authority to  co-opt  or use the
blocks for its own purposes  or to be writing any LOA  for announcements
covering aggregates  for these blocks which are registered to other
organizations,

And which improper announcements can break the default route for BGP
speakers carrying partial tables (filtered by length) and which may cause
other unwanted and damaging affects.
