It would be equally "nice" (perhaps better) if "people who need IPv4 
space" could get some of it (after all, the only reason you want ARIN to 
get it back is to they can turn around and give it to people who need 
space), which they can do under a transfer policy, and which the holder 
will be willing to do once the people who need the space are willing to 
pay him enough. Among other things, unlike ARIN's "here's a block, for 
nearly free" policies, the price paid would scale all on its own with an 
address market, and these particular addresses (as having been used by a 
spammer) would actually have that history reflected in their (presumably 
discounted) price.
