[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-131: Section 5.0 Legacy Addresses - revised

Martin

As others have asked I am curious why this applies only to legacy space.  If
someone gives back to ARIN a block of non-legacy space what should ARIN do
with it?   If ARIN gives it back to the IANA it's stranded there because
IANA only has a policy to give /8s to RIRs.   Is it written somewhere that
non-legacy space will be made available in the ARIN region?

Thanks!
