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.

Ronald,

In answer to your question 

    I would like to know if there is, or would be, 
    general hostility to the notion of ARIN asking for
    concrete documentation of the identities of the beneficial
    owners (say, for 25% ownership or above) of non-publicly-traded 
    corporate entities to which ARIN assigns number resources.

I don't know about general hostility, but I personally am hostile to this notion.

I have a couple of reasons:

1. As a small company, we have better things to do than provide more documentation.
2. This looks a lot like a search for a problem in hopes of suggesting that the problem exists rather than a response to a real problem.

Keith

Well, in a word, no.  but I appreciate your response as it does shed a bit more light on this overall topic.

Of course, I have no real idea what the exact meaning of this phrase is:
"provided that the applicant has a real and substantial connection with the ARIN region".  But that's OK, because I don't imagine that anybody else has either, and I intuit that this exact squishy phraseology was made a part of ARIN-2015-5 rather deliberately, to insure general acceptance of the larger proposal.

To return to my original point however, I would like to know if there is, or would be, general hostility to the notion of ARIN asking for concrete documentation of the identities of the beneficial owners (say, for 25% ownership or above) of non-publicly-traded corporate entities to which ARIN assigns number resources.

As should be evident, in the current era, and given the various shenanigans, political and otherwise, that have dogged the Internet generally in recent years, I personally am of the opinion that additional transparency is not only warranted but necessary, even if for no other reason than to fully comply with both the letter and the spirit of existing law and various international sanction regimes.
