Hum...  Lets looks at this for a bit.

27% whois 1800

    Autonomous System Name: ICM-Atlantic
    Autonomous System Number: 1800

ICM is the NSF project for International Connection Mangment yes?
Are you intimating that the NSF ICM contract prohibits it from 
working with the NSF RA project?  

Perhaps someone from the NSF would be willing to give us a reading
here.  I had thought that these two NSF projects were to work together
to improve the stability of the global Internet routing system.

I'd would appreciate some clarification here.
