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.
