So issuing an address block via ARIN is issued in a vacuum with no 
implied routing responsibilities?  I also don't understand why it would 
be a significant change to add such responsibility.

"ARIN hereby allocates to you an IP address block and hereby grants you 
sole permission to announce that address block to the Internet."

Simple enough?
