Those reviews are not aimed at de-registration of resources, they
simply do not go down that path.
Listen to the very comments from the respective registration managers
that were in Mauritius and commented on that very topic.
I am glad you were in the room, listen back to their comments again as
you are only remembering half of what they said.


Speculation and fearmongering aside.

Ok lets put fraud aside and look at ARIN review policy from a compliance
point of view and I will quote again.


<>  And below is the content of
ARIN NRP section 12. Subsection 4 (1) and (2)*4. Organizations found by
ARIN to be materially out of compliance with current ARIN policy shall be
requested or required to return resources as needed to bring them into (or
reasonably close to) compliance.

   1. The degree to which an organization may remain out of compliance
      shall be based on the reasonable judgment of the ARIN staff and shall
      balance all facts known, including the organization's utilization rate,
      available address pool, and other factors as appropriate so as to avoid
      forcing returns which will result in near-term additional requests or
      unnecessary route de-aggregation.
      2. To the extent possible, entire blocks should be returned. Partial
      address blocks shall be returned in such a way that the portion retained
      will comprise a single aggregate block.

What does the above mean in alay mans lingo considering English is foreign
to me.
