The key words here are " who maintain contact with ARIN "

defunct contact info does not fulfill that clause.

>From http://www.arin.net/registration/legacy/ question 2's answer:

"The first important benefit is the contractual promise to continue
receiving WHOIS and IN-ADDR services. ARIN currently provides those services
free to all legacy resource holders who maintain contact with ARIN. This
could change if the community so desired. Correspondingly, we understand
Legacy holders don’t want to receive free services from the community, but
are willing to pay their fair share of the expenses."

It seems to me that the bulk of responses from legacy holders to PPML are
not favorable to ARIN having any rights to the resources they received
pre-ARIN.  So, perhaps it's time to revisit "This could change if the
community so desired" in the paragraph above.  If ARIN has no relationship
at all with the legacy space, including providing whois and in-addr.arpa
services, then a lot of these discussions are moot, no?

What "legacy agreements"?  Are there contracts in place which bind ARIN to
provide services?
