I think you've missed one bus and I've missed another :-)

The point is not to figure out what ARIN intended.  The point is that
ARIN's current wording is confusing and leads to widely differing
interpretations, to the extent that I find myself a victim of one of these
interpretations.  These interpretations vary from "they are just trying to
collect data" to "you will be required to technically justify any
allocation request" to "if you are found to be using addresses that cannot
be technically justified you will be required to return them" and anything
in between and beyond.

The wording needs to be clarified (and only ARIN can do that). Otherwise
these situations will continually arise.

best regards
