So ARIN can spend about one /19 registration fee on a server to send over
to one of the other registries, and can run a mirror server at that remote
location.  They'd use SSH/scp so as to be sure nobody from the other
registry sniffed their packets and stole the secrets of their software.

Maybe I'm missing something...it just doesn't seem like rocket science to
me.
