The 2009-1 text requires the addresses to be returned by ARIN then  
to the third party.  As such, I believe it is implicit that ARIN would  
require an
RSA from the third party prior to issuing the addresses to them.

I don't think that the RSA facts change, but, I do think that direct  
recorded by ARIN vs. transfers through ARIN is a material change.  I am
not sure what the implications of such a change are, but, I am  
inclined to
believe that there is wisdom in having the transfers go through ARIN
instead of merely having ARIN record them.

This is a very material change and not for the better.

Yes, but, I think there is a distinct lack of consensus around which  
I believe that is how we arrived at 2008-6 instead of 2008-2.
