This above kinda sums up the issue.  My understanding is this language 
comes from the RSA.

While the document grants the right to be the registrant and use the 
"Included Number Resources", other language stating that you cannot use 
someone elses number resources without the permission of the registrant of 
those OTHER resources is missing from the RSA.  That is what needs fixing.

Of course, it is not easy to amend the RSA.  Therefore it is being 
advanced to add the BGP hijacking language to the NRPM, which each ARIN 
RSA signer has also agreed to follow.

If the language is added to the NRPM and the hijacker is an ARIN RSA 
signer, enforcement could be up to and including the revoke of all ARIN 
resources.  However, all the worldwide resources are NOT assigned to ARIN, 
therefore nothing can really be done by ARIN in these cases where the 
hijacker is NOT an ARIN member.

As a result, the Advisory Committee declared it totally out of scope, even 
though it does appear in scope if the hijacking is being done by an ARIN 
RSA signer.

Unless this conflict can be solved, it is out of scope, at least when it 
would be applied to non ARIN RSA signers.  However, I think it is in scope 
when hijacking of ARIN assigned resources occur by an ARIN RSA signer.
