Roger - 
  ARIN is responsible, but that's for the implementation of number
  resource policy which is actually adopted by the community.  If
  you want that policy to include unused legacy resource reclamation  
  or no allocations for organizations which can make use of NAT/LSN,
  then you need to introduce policy proposals to that end.

  (See https://www.arin.net/policy/pdp_appendix_b.html regarding 
   submitting policy proposals)
