In the particular (historical) cases I'm aware of, the address space in question was legacy /24s and the transfers were done (as I understand it) according to ARIN policies of the time.
David - I didn't say that "the practice of creating a company to hold IP addresses
then selling that company to another organization" was considered fraudulent by ARIN.
I asked that you please report such cases, as depending on the specific circumstances
they are *potentially* fraudulent.

As a member of the community, you are free to propose changes to or elimination
of the policies in the NRPM which you are not comfortable with; I expect that you
will find them in sections 8 and 12. The policy development role is open to the
community, but specifically not the ARIN Board and Staff, so there is perhaps a
little more separation present than your email suggests.
