Robert - 
 
  To be clear, ARIN was formed by the Internet operator community to 
  perform these Internet Registry functions.  While the USG acknowledged
  its formation and facilitated the transition of the performance of  
  these functions to ARIN, ARIN is not performing these duties under 
  USG contract.  I have no view on the question to which you replied,
  but want to be certain everyone has clear facts for the discussion.
