Sorry for the spam if you got this message twice, but I suspect that 
ARIN's mailing list is not properly setup to handle domains that have 
DMARC records setup.

I had to disable DMARC on my entire domain to get this message posted.

@John: this should _probably_ be fixed if you want to solicit feedback 
from the community. :-)

Won't this allow easier for hijacking? I am going off the assumption 
that original POC records have domains that expired.

Random idea: ARIN could query all records and see if the domain has 
expired or/and check if the creation date is newer then the date in its 
database. If a record matches to any of those: perhaps do not restore to 
the original state? Or.. am I over thinking this?

Isn't that the same thing? Replace the current handle with a new handle? 
I do not get it. Could still query the database and find all records 
that have the new handle.

If you include text like "Legacy Record" you are also spilling more 
information to the public about the resource: Legacy, etc. What other 
status do you plan to use and share with the public?

I like it.

Out of curiosity how large of an impact is this to the ARIN community? 
You mentioned thousands of instances in the opening thread and many are 
legacy resources. I know you can not go into too much specificity, but 
is this 50% of all ARIN IP resources? 10%?

This would better gauge the importance of the impact which did not come 
out clear in the original email.
