We believe that ARIN staff can take care of this as a procedure and
that it is not necessary to spell it out in policy.

Paragraph 6 is intended to express the timeline for voluntary return
under paragraph 4.  Perhaps reordering paragraphs 5 and 6 would
make this more clear?

Yes.  The reasoning behind this is that we do not believe ARIN has any
contract or authority which allows ARIN to take such actions with  
to legacy holders.  ARIN is not a government body and cannot apply
imminent domain.  ARIN doesn't have any agreement with legacy holders
which allows them to take any such action with respect to legacy space.
