I agree with Owen on this.

ARIN should only accept returned legacy addresses from holders in the ARIN region.  But, once accepted, that address space has been effectively transferred to ARIN.  It is up to ARIN policy to decide whether to return that block to IANA, reallocate to new requests, etc.  And there are no technical reasons to treat address blocks differently, as far as I'm aware.

Cheers,
