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
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
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.
