But then you need to explain to me why we have a growing number of NIRs in Asia and Africa (including Japan) and I why I spent several months this year trying to prevent the US DEA and DoJ from imposing jurisdictional boundaries on ARIN allocations on the basis of a "know your customer" rationale. To me the explanation seems obvious; if a political authority can align allocation and assignment authority with their own jurisdiction then they have more power over Internet uses and users.
