Easy to do, you can either: 

1) Change the appropriate policy language (NRPM 6.4.1) via the ARIN policy 
   development process, in which case the LRSA will be updated as noted, or 

2) If you feel that you'd prefer a different forum, you can address this on a  
   more global basis (since each RIR has similar language regarding addresses) 
   by going through the IETF and revising the RFCs, which will likely result 
   in the RIRs all reviewing their documents accordingly.

Either route requires that the community comes to a consensus on the change 
and can give you the results you seek.  Or you can enjoy the status quo.

p.s. If you want to continue to discuss, can we shortly move this to PPML 
     or ARIN-Discuss for the sake of those not interested in these matters
     who have different expectations from their NANOG list subscription?
