The power is in the hands of this community; they get to set whatever 
policies are used for management of number resources.  ARIN has to 
defend the ability of this community to self-govern, but it is up to
them as to how much/little policy they feel is actually necessary and 
in the best interest of them and the Internet.  Note that the very same
thing occurs with the IETF or W3C having to defend the ability of that 
community to decide what is/isn't in a technical standard.
