Suppose 2002-6 were reworded to reflect the issues raised as such.....
If an organization, whether a member or non-member, ISP or end-user,
relinquishes a group of portable, non-aggregatable address blocks to
ARIN, they shall be allowed to receive a block in exchange, /24 or
shorter, but no more than the shortest block that could contain all of
the returned blocks. Exchanged space shall be returned within 12
months. For example, if an organization relinquished three /24s, they
should be allowed to take either a /24, a /23, or a /22 in exchange. If
all of the previous address blocks were maintained in the ARIN database
without maintenance fees, the replacement space shall be as well, but if
any one of the returned blocks had associated maintenance fees, then the
replacement block shall also be subject to maintenance fees.
If any organization relinquishes a group of portable, non-aggregatable
address blocks to ARIN, they shall receive a block in exchange. Exchange
blocks will be of sufficient size to contain the space of all returned
blocks without justification up to /17. Exchange blocks of greater than /17
will require justification of address useage per existing ARIN requirements
for addtional address allocations. Exchange blocks larger than /20 must be
renumbered within 12 months; all others must be renumbered within 6 months.
If ALL returned blocks were maintained by ARIN without maintenance fees, the
exchange block will also be maintained without fee.
