Beats me!  I heard a rumor to that effect some years ago now, but that
may perhaps have been in relation to memberhips in some other RIR.
I just can't recall anymore.

Well, you know, I kinda think that that one wouldn't apply, at least not
within the ARIN region.

What if I told you that it was going to cost ten cents and take five minutes
of effort, total, for _all_ ARIN members to be vetted for "liveness"?  Would
that change the calculus for you any or have any effect on your opinion?

To put it another way...

Are you opposed to vetting membership liveness strictly on the basis of cost
concerns?  Or are you opposed because the very notion offends some other
personal sensibility?
