It's much, much easier to set policy going forward than it is to impose and
enforce policy retroactively.  When you're talking about allocations that
predate ARIN, how exactly is ARIN supposed to take action?  ARIN should
focus on the best possible management of the remaining IP space, while
encouraging and requesting that companies with legacy assignments return
them whenever possible.
