Bill - 

Yes, I remain well aware of it, but alas it was the NSF that directed the transfer of the tasks and 
database to ARIN – there is nothing present in their direction to suggest your postulated limitation, 
and the NSF press release is remarkably clear that the community will be able to set policy for the 
management of the registry database.  

You may believe that you have some encumbrance on the ARIN registry database that allows you 
to operate outside of the community-developer policy, but absent some agreement to that effect I’d 
advise against doing so as ARIN will continue to operate the registry per the community-developed
policy for all registry entries, legacy included – as announced by NSF at ARIN’s formation.
