[arin-ppml] Deceased Companies?

Hi Ron,

I have wondered myself. I have heard of a team inside ARIN working to
identify such blocks, if my memory serves.

I have seen administratively and voluntarily dissolved corporations come
back to life, so ARIN must consider this. 
The duration of dormancy allowed varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
These jurisdictions normally see an inflow of back filing fees as part of
They may not have much incentive to prevent these things.
Complicated for ARIN, the blocks are hijack bait and could be put to proper
use through re-issuance, but it could be a thorny and expensive legal issue
and exposure.
It would be nice to have some idea of the scope of the issue. Even in the
case of old sole proprietorships where the registrant dies, the fate of
addresses is unclear.

Can some helpful soul please point me to the section of the NPRM that lays
out the ARIN policy/policies that relate to ARIN members / resources holders
that were, once upon a time, legally constituted corporate entities, but
that have ceased being validly registered corporate entities?

I am most particularly interested to know whether ARIN is either permitted
or obligated to reclaim any number resources that may have been assigned to
such entities.

NOTE:  I am asking now *only* about NON-LEGACY memberships & resources.
