[arin-ppml] LRSA taking back addresses

Honest question: How many RSA allocations and assignments have been
revoked and reclaimed by ARIN? How many for LRSA covered space (I
assume this one is zero as it is a new contract, question is here for
the sake of being thorough)? Is there (or could there be) an available
list of such events that records the size, date, cause, etc?
