What other means are available to motivate organizations to bring legacy space under the LRSA that don't cause other problems? If we're loking at the larger picture of parceling out unused or underutilized IPv4 space, is there a way ARIN can ease those needs in trade? (Is there a desire to help or harm that?)

John is essentially right: I'm not trying to motivate legacy holders into the LRSA, but I am trying to make it clear that ARIN won't include legacy resources in the Whois database without the holder's consent.  Of course, entering into a LRSA is one way to express consent, but ARIN could devise other mechanisms if desired.
