One might term that “proactive implementation of Know Your Customer best-practices.”
In other words, look at what KYC processes regulators require of their regulated entities in other industries, and do the same, before someone thinks to require it of us.
I have neither an argument for or against that yet, need to think about it more, but a few points:
- Doing that in any _substantial_ way would add expense, since it will dissuade some bad actors, but would encourage others to falsify documents or otherwise give ARIN staff the run-around.
- It doesn’t appease your curiosity, since as I said before, the results of KYC documentation wouldn’t be made public.
