[arin-ppml] [arin-announce] [Fwd: ARIN-prop-136 Services Opt-out Allowed for Unaffiliated Address Blocks]

Correct, Benson. Offering legacy holders a chance to opt out is the opposite of attempting to force them into an LRSA. It actually provides them a viable option to the LRSA. Anyone who sees either 133 or 136 as an attack on legacy holders is not listening to or reading what Benson is proposing.
