does arin *really* still have that amazing barrier to market entry?

arin claims to be a shining example of industry self-governance.  to me,
this barrier to entry looks far more like industry self-protection from
new entrants.

and before anyone starts bleeding about the routing table, to me that
sounds like you fear new entrants forcing you to make a small upgrade to
your protected business as usual.
