For RSA plans that consist entirely of legacy number resources (i.e. blocks issued by ARIN’s predecessor registry entities and now held by the original registrant or their legal successor), then there is a cap on the total annual maintenance fees.  There is a benefit to consolidation, but indeed the legacy registration fee cap is not applicable to registration service plans include non-legacy resources.  The choice to consolidate under a single RSA or not remains with the customer, and may not be optimum in all cases.

Right, so this is a fancy way of saying if you don’t want to consolidate, we’re going to bill you twice for what used to be billed as a single organization.

Owen -

It is not particularly fancy or complicated: it is simply confirming that the choice is yours – you can consolidate under a single agreement, pay what everyone else is paying (and less than you are paying today), or can maintain separate agreements and pay more for the sake of maintaining the provision that caps fee changes for your legacy resource holdings.
