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

this is not true

http://rs.arin.net/faq.html

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

NSIĆ­s 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
statement?

All of it.  While it is still an "arm" of NSI, it is not a non-profit. At
some point it will become independent and non-profit. At which point it
will not be an arm of the NSI.  At no time will it ever be a "non-profit
arm of the NSI".
