That would be convenient, wouldn't it ?

Maybe Terminix was not the best example for your taste.
What about an international coalition ? Think Somali pirates.
No single nation can tackle the problem. But these are our sailors and seals out there. This is a rather grizzly job at times; sometimes it's better if it's not recorded. In that case we can't handle this job out to "security contractors" because they flat out lack the resources. However, for BGP hijacking I would rather have it handled by some subcontractor that does not mind doing the dirty job, as opposed as ARIN not doing much. Political correctness, cost, actual results. Pick any two.
