Of course ARIN could adjust its contract that way. That ARIN -chooses-
not to.does not make John Gilmore's claim false.

Moreover, ARIN could choose to offer RPKI service under a contract
which specifies only that the RPKI services are applicable only to IP
addresses registered to the contractee at ARIN without saying anything
about how they're registered. Such an approach would meet ARIN's
self-imposed requirement to treat everybody the same without
disturbing the status quo for legacy registrations.

ARIN chooses not to SOLELY as a -forcing function- to get legacy
registrants to sign an RSA declaring that they've no rights over the
IP addresses. And ARIN does so to the detriment of the routing
community which would benefit from those legacy registrants joining
the RPKI system.

And I'd be willing to bet that if you polled the ARIN members, the
majority would rather have the legacy registrants participate in RPKI
even if they didn't have to sign the RSA covering their IP addresses
to do it.
