When we did a similar change it was very painful. We had someone no
longer here listed as the contact and it took lawyers and notorized statements
proving that we in fact owned the address space and lots of time to get ARIN
to change it. As you suggested we changed to a role account :-). It may have
been partly that we were old enough that we registered before there was a
Canadian registry and we were therefore "grandfathered" (which I think
translated to poorly documented :-)) which may have been part of the problem.
