Why do you say ARIN is duty-bound in any way to return "that .8 Mil"?
I don't think that is right at all.
There are probably various useful ways in which ARIN could spend that
to perform ARIN's duties better. Reducing fees or 'returning' $$ is
just one option,
but not particularly beneficial to ARIN's continued survival.
Also in terms offsetting loss of IPv4 allocation-related revenue
after V4 exhaustion.
And new expenses incurred related to managing IPv6 address space
and service enhancements, outreach, etc...
