Given the effects of the decisions that ARIN is making that would seem to be a very prudent idea. It should be noted however, that no matter how "democratic" any organization is or claims to be, the decisions they make do not supercede the laws of the country(ies) that they operate in. At the point that someone feels their rights under the law are being violated sufficiently (such as restraint of trade) and has the necessary resources, I imagine these sorts of things will simply end up in court.
