I actually agree with you that it could be done with less people, 
if you want to do away with the policies altogether and the biannual 
meetings discussing the same, the need for elections for an ARIN AC
and meetings, the coordination with the other RIRs and ICANN, and 
the engagement with organizations such as ISOC, IGF, and ITU.  We 
will be talking about the costs of running ARIN on the last day of 
the ARIN meeting in Philly in case you want more details on the cost
side of the equation and the value delivered.
