You said what I tried to remember and say. :-) 
You forget "Inside The Beltway" One could never win tortuous interference lawsuit of this nature. 
We do not speak their language which the Federal Courts also speak in the DC Circuit. :-) 
It is business as usual for them. :-( 
They probably would counter-sue us for damages and win. :-(

Bill - 

ARIN making unilateral changes on an ad-hoc basis? I certainly would hope not. 

However, if you are referring changes made accordingly to the policies established 
by the community, that’s an entirely different matter – and actually fundamental as 
to why the transition to ARIN – 

"Creation of ARIN will give the users of IP numbers (mostly Internet service providers, corporations and other large institutions) a voice in the policies by which they are managed and allocated within the North American region.”

If you’re a legacy resource holder, it’s best to recognize that ARIN’s formation was precisely so 
that you could gain the ability to participate & gain a voice in policy development for management 
of the registry (as opposed to having it set by some US government contractor or bureaucrat.) 
i.e. it’s a lot less murky than you suggest.
