People depend on ARIN's IP assignments being widely routable. When 2 different ARIN clients pay the same amount of money for leasing an IP block, the "goods" they receive should be of the same quality. ARIN clients should have the ability to exchange defective "goods". It seems ARIN won't do this. And posting to NANOG or similar lists doesn't seem to fix the problem. Sooner or later someone's going to decide to let the lawyers deal with it. I don't think ARIN's resources should be wasted in the courts. This type of problem is likely to spur interest in more regional registries. There's been talk of CIRA seting up a Canadian IP registry. This has been handled by ARIN took over the work UofT was doing years ago. -Ralph
