Right.  And that would be presumptious and totally uncalled for.  Because
after all, ARIN -never- looks at anyone's "operations", right?  You know,
things like equipment purchase lists, utilization, ...

Actually, no.  It's not complicated.  If you have a physical nexus in the
state, you have to register the business there.

There are two reasons for this:

    *)  The state wants its taxes.

    *)  Anybody in the state who has legal beef with the company needs to
        have an in-state Agent For Service of Process that they can serve
        with papers... papers that would be valid, relevant and binding
        with respect to a STATE-LEVEL legal action.
