This isn't nike...

I'm sorry for being obtuse, but they (arin) can't really do anything.
I suspect that if they had to prosecute all folks in violation of the
RSA they would have financial issues... and it wouldn't really solve
anything long term anyway.

In short, ARIN can't affect routability
             ARIN can't effectively deal with the contract issues in a
timely fashion

So.. what are they going to 'just do'?
