They will then need to justify their assignment (at least the IPv6 assignment) to get space. Possibly they would have to "back justify" their legacy space? Maybe this is a way we can limp along with V4 longer?

IPv6 number resources are issued by ARIN under a standard RSA, and
the agreement can be independent of any existing number resources.

Changing the handling of legacy resource holders is a valid topic 
for the community to discuss, but let's do so either at meeting
or in response to a specific proposal submitted to the suggestion
process.  The current consultation on fee changes does not change
the present handling of legacy resource holders, so let's keep to
the merits of the proposed fee change in this discussion thread.
