I support this change to the Policy Text;

I think this clarifies the situation without giving the impression that an
organization can obtain resources from ARIN without being
incorporated within the ARIN region.

It might provide additional clarity without cluttering section 8.2 by
adding the following to the other comments section of this Draft Policy;

To clarify more broadly, a legal entity incorporated within the ARIN
service region is necessary to receive any allocation or assignment from
ARIN. Therefore, in the scenario postulated in the problem statement, the
organization would have to re-establish itself within the ARIN service
region to receive additional resources from ARIN, while it can continue to
hold the allocations or assignments made prior to any merger, acquisition,
or reorganization activity.
