To clarify, as I've gotten some questions about my stance;
those addresses which were allocated by IANA to ARIN for
the region, I believe should stay within the region.

Address blocks *not* allocated by IANA to ARIN, namely
address blocks assigned to "legacy" holders should be returned
whence they came, if they are freed up, namely to IANA, as those
never passed through ARIN's hands in the first place.
