Good Point John,
but the question remains. What do we do when IP user A has not returned those IP address?
When IPv4 is closer to complete exhaustion there will be an issue with turn around time to reallocation/reissue.
And when someone is got their new block and is only partially using their old block, someone else might be in a holding pattern.....

RIR's have no control or authority over the global routing table.
Ergo no way to reclaim those old blocks.

and IMHO, RIR's should NOT have any control over the routing

If after 12 months they still have servers or services running in
those old blocks, to have them removed from the routing table could
create a tort or restraint of trade legal issue that I'm not sure
ARIN is financially able to deal with.
