A large portion of the reasoning behind this policy was to get legacy  
IP holders to free up space.

1. They don't pay fees today, and wouldn't if we increased fees.

2. They would have less incentive to participate, as when they do  
this deal they have to sign the RSA.  If the costs for their IP space  
increase, then they have less incentive to sign the RSA and thus, to  

I think that a nice side effect of the proposed policy (might be)  
that we'd get more legacy holders to sign the RSA ;-)
