I think all ARIN is doing is trying to do a little research into who
"Noisebridge" is as an entity before they go re-assigning scarce IP
space to us. Really, all they should be concerned about is the
registration of our ORG ID in their system, the domain is arguably
unrelated to the IP space, so while this *shouldn't* be an issue, I'd
imagine they did a couple WHOIS queries and said to themselves, "wtf?"

All that should matter to them is that this:
http://whois.arin.net/rest/org/NOISE is registered to the right
person.

Dr. J, what was their specific request / question?

Cheers,
jof
