All the questions can probably be answered by noting that ARIN is a
non-profit arm of NSI.

this is not true


"17. What are the roles of Network Solutions and the InterNIC?  

NSI’s role is to sponsor ARIN, providing assistance to its establishment
and providing initial support of ARIN until ARIN is self-funding. Once this
is achieved, there will be no ties--financial, management or other--between
the two organizations. ARIN will be an independent, non-profit organization
responding to its membership. "

Since it is not yet self-funding, what, exactly, part is untrue of my

I don't claim to have the definitive answer but this FAQ was written when
the plan was for NSI to donate a pile of money to finance the first year
of ARIN operations. But I believe that this plan fell through and this
financing never happened. Even if it had happened, ARIN is an independent
non-profit corporation meaning that there are no shareholders other than
the members therefore there is no outside control like you find in the
corporate world.
