Perhaps I'm being dense, but I can't figure out who this benefits.  A  
proposal always benefits someone.  Can you tell me who this proposal  
is supposed to benefit?

In short:
	ARIN will lose space -- doesn't benefit ARIN.
	No incentive to recover space -- doesn't benefit anyone except  
perhaps people who never want to give up space.
