But again John, and I think you are hearing this over and over (comments 
that the arin community at large want to see ARIN enforcement of already 
established policies), but what might help is to clearly layout the 
exact steps needed to create, approve, and ratify policies of 
enforcement that ARIN will act on.

While a lengthy read and some informed interpretation of the current 
methods that ARIN would like to see such a mandate (enforcement) 
ratified by the community, could you explain in short simple steps the 
path to getting to a stage where ARIN 'would' not only have the mandate, 
but start acting on such a mandate?

That might help this conversation..

PS, what was your personal take on implementing a public reporting of 
non-compliance events system, that allowed the public to see what 
actions/porgress is/are being made by ARIN in requesting the 
non-complying party to get into compliance?

Seems that under the current model, other parties seem to have 'doubts' 
on how effective reporting is..
