Yes, they can sign either the RSA or LRSA.  If your customers consider 
both of those unacceptable, they are free to remain without an RSA for 
their legacy IPv4 space, and acquire IPv6 space under existing policy, 
with a new RSA covering just the IPv6 space.

This policy is intended to remove the disincentive for small legacy 
holders to move to IPv6, by allowing them to get provider independent 
IPv6 space to go along with their PI IPv4 space.  Anyone who already 
qualifies for IPv6 space, however, would not be affected by this policy
