[arin-ppml] Beneficial Owners

I think the example, (2014, DE shell, owned by proscribed parties, gets
stewardship of resources, ARIN <should> due diligence on beneficial
owners)  has ARIN over-reaching the State of Delaware and the
IRS/Treasury.   If a legal entity passes documentation muster (as JC
pointed out) then ARIN is obliged/compelled to follow its policies.  In the
case of suspect behaviours, DE can cancel the corporate registration and
the IRS/Treas can sequester assets & block transactions.  I believe a court
could instruct ARIN to recover or assign resources.   ARIN <IMnsHO> should
stick to its knitting.  ARIN <currently> has no business in maintaing a DNA
registry of all natural persons who may have been associated in a
transaction with ARIN over resource assignments and use that registry in
cooperation with global LEA to catch perps.
I hope ARIN never goes there.
