The only thing I'd add to this is when large well-known entities, like
universities or goverment agencies, are involved this vetting is usually
fairly simple. It could be more complicated if the resource were in the
name of a project and not the entity itself. But, other than that, the
hardest part is ensuring ARIN is dealing with someone who is properly
authorized to speak for the large well-known entity.
