My apologies, you're correct.  I misread the policy to read the way I 
thought it should, not the way it's written.

I would support a further revision to 2007-15 to provide a grace period 
(such as 1 year) between availability of a Legacy Resource Record Holder 
RSA and the requirement of being covered by such an RSA before making 
changes to records.

And I wouldn't oppose that.

I don't think we need to invoke the stick before putting out the formal 
invitation.  I suspect we'll need the stick eventually.  If we choose 
not to require the RSA initially, I think we need to get a report from 
ARIN staff after a certain amount of time (6 months or so maybe) on the 
adoption rate of the new RSA, and discuss requirements at that point.
