Hi Joe,

Could this be the exception that proves the rule that natural persons are
not permitted to request ARIN resources?  Natural persons are legal
entities but they're not formed, they're born or naturalized. Do we -want-
that implicit rejection to be policy?

I'd stick with "legal entity" and avoid modifiers like "formed" or

Grammar's a bit rough too. "M&A activity" is the noun that goes with "will
be permitted," but the idea is that the the legal entity will be permitted.
Here's a stab at a rewrite:

"Where M&A activity results in a surviving legal entity outside the ARIN
service region, the surviving legal entity may hold the number resources
but is ineligible to receive additional ARIN number resources."
