You are aware that at least APNIC passed a policy to require all
of the legacy space holders in their region to sign a current RSA
and (as far as I can tell) abide by all current APNIC rules?


When the records were transferred to RIPE, RIPE made the statement
that to modify them the user would have to sign a RIPE service
agreement.  I can't find anyone that states the success level they
have had with that policy.


I can't quickly find any information on the ERX activities to LACNIC
or AfriNIC.

In terms of global policy though, at least two RIR's have already
taken action on their own, and the action is to sign a current
contract and abide by all current rules.  I'm not sure those RIR's would
be interested a global policy that does something different at this
