I support 2007-17.

I believe the community is best served by accepting returned address 
space (and swapping address space for smaller and/or aggregatable 
blocks) with as few restrictions as possible.  I specifically like the 
"no RSA" part of this proposal.

I think signing of any agreement with ARIN, even the proposed Legacy 
RSA, is an impediment to returning resources -- if I personally held 
legacy space, I'd be very reluctant to do it.

The particular proposal text may need further work, particularly to 
address the NRPM section 4.7 confusion identified by staff.  I'd also 
prefer to see the policy not mention the RSA specifically but instead 
say "any agreement".  (I used broad language like that on 15 May 2006 
as part of the "Requirement for Reasonable Contract Terms" policy
