Bill -

If you violate ARIN’s registry policies, your legacy address block will be subject to revocation, and 
ff ARIN then revokes your block, then you can entertain your legal theories as much as you wish. 

However, until such time, I shall not create disputes where none presently exist, nor contention
without due cause for those who are enjoying their issued number resources.
