I want to switch to the proposed transfer policy for a moment and see 
how that crosses with this.

So if company runs a service that justifies a /19 from ARIN and then 
sells that service to another, the buying company can then justify a 
/19 worth of space.  Does the selling company "have" to give up the 
/19?  I mean, will ARIN reclaim the space at any time or are we 
relying on the selling company to voluntarily free the space and/or 
transfer it to the buying company?

I asking out of a little confusion.
