Isn't this a little bit like an SSL daemon?  One which refuses to process a revocation list on the basis of the function of the certificate is useless.  The revocation list only has authority if the agent asks for and processes it.  Would you use this SSL daemon, knowing that it had this bug?

I would consider a transit provider who subverted an ARIN revocation to be disreputable, and seek other sources of transit.
