So would I, since I've been agitating for it since ARIN came into
existance.  I even posted a proposal here a couple of months back that met
with some derision and lots of reasons why it can't happen (and one in
which my opinion carried no weight since I didn't have a membership).

Maybe if ARIN can do it, InterNIC can, too.  Then again...if InterNIC
continues in their current fashion, maybe it'll hurt them in the coming
registration wars...
