I believe you are correct about maintaining a balance with ARIN, it would be a lot of excess work on ARIN for no real benefit to anyone.

I would think that space would be returned to the free pool as in the current policy situation. Fees would only relate to space for which ARIN had paid a recovery incentive.

I'm not so sure about this.  I think as an operational matter, this would be pretty hard on ARIN.
