Not swip'ing your IPs is also a violation of the agreement, but until you 
go back to ARIN for more IPs (opps, they're out), that's not an issue.  I 
see this policy as pointless as written because it doesn't say that ARIN 
will take any action other than publishing an opinion.  I think you're 
also assuming there's a pool of experts standing by willing to investigate 
every alleged hijacking (for free?).  Maybe there are.  If there aren't, 
or once they get tired of investigating allegations, what then?
