That line states "...maintained in the [ARIN database]..." and was intended
to represent ANY resources under ARIN administrative jurisdiction whether
or not abandoned.  It is not intended, nor do I believe staff has interpreted
it to mean abandoned resources cannot be audited or reclaimed under
section 12.

Both are tools. Section 3.6.1 provides for detection and identification
of abandoned resources. Section 12 provides for the reclamation of
underutilized resources regardless of the method used to identify or
detect them.

(This is just my own opinion, not an official statement from ARIN or
the AC).
