Which begs the question for me -- ARIN already operates services that operators rely upon.  Why are they different?  Does ARIN run no risk of litigation due to some perceived involvement of those services in someone's operational outage?

Has there been litigation against ARIN tied to, for example, reverse DNS?  Or the IRR?
