To be clear, all parties receiving resources (whether from the ARIN free pool 
or via transfer) are RSA signatories.

For example, that means that presently a party seeking IPv6 resources from ARIN must 
agree to representations with regard to all number resources, including those which they
obtained prior to ARIN’s formation.   The Board has made plain that providing basic registry 
services for legacy resource holders (despite the lack of such agreements) is within the 
community’s overall interest -  there is obviously a similar tradeoff to be considered with
respect to seeking acknowledgement of principles for all number resources from those 
requesting IPv6 resources versus making IPv6 number resources more widely available.

(i.e. an excellent topic for community discussion)
