We argued exactly that, and the language to the contrary was removed by
the parties. 

An address block is transferred when the registry entry is updated; if there is a 
party that wants ARIN to update the entry contrary to policy, then the party that
alleges this “right” must make that argument in court to obtain an order to that

See answer to Mr. Herrin earlier regarding significant motivation due to future
address blocks to be transferred.

If that’s the case, then excellent - I look forward to seeing these promptly 
adjudicated as a result of a party making an appropriate claim to that end.
