Just because one person thinks he has business all figured out doesn't mean its really that way. Those details are for lawyers not email lists.

This does involved confirming the the incorporation of the business against the state business registry in the state provided by the applicant. We do not presently check whether the organization has registered in any other states to conduct business, nor do we restrict an organization or its points of contact from changing their postal address as desired.

Maybe some states require it if you've got a physical presence there or employees there (though most states are pretty ambiguous about their exact requirements for this - a mail drop may not require it).  But lots of businesses don't bother to register in every state outside of their main state of incorporation, and that doesn't make them any less of an active, legally registered business.

Businesses are supposed to do this, but if they don't they can still be a legally registered business with a justifiable need for number resources.  ARIN is a regional internet numbers registry, not a governmental code enforcement agency.
