Hi Jordi,

The moment you say "enforce," you've left the realm of the possible in
the ARIN region. ARIN can require a contact to exist. They can't
require you to do anything specific with information sent to it; that
exceeds the contract with the registrant.

Insisting on no progress without the impossible is simply insisting on
no progress.

Regards,
Bill Herrin
