That'd be a whole lot more than ARIN has ever done. You want them 
spending their time trying to revoke and reclaim IPv4 space from 
spammers (for instance) instead of working on getting IPv6 everywhere?

And of course the part they have been great at - diligence in the 
issuance of IPv4 resources - is within a hair's breadth of done forever.

Can you explain exactly how ARIN can keep "liars and fraudsters" from 
paying someone money, using their address block anywhere in the world 
for any purpose whatsoever, etc.?

All they can do is update, or not update, the registration database per 
policy. This policy proposal makes their job easier and makes the 
database more likely to reflect the ongoing state of the IPv4 transfer
