I am unsure if I am being pedantic here, or if there is an intent
to exclude legacy space.

Legacy space was not issued by any of the current RIR's.  ARIN may
be able to claim it is the decendant of the issuer (warning, can
of worms), but for instance other RIR's had legacy space transferred
to them years ago.

It is entirely possible to read that sentence as excluding legacy
space as a result, which I hope was not the intention.
s/issuing/responsible/ would clear up any confusion, although I'm
uncleaer why the sentence is needed at all.  Do we really need to
state that IANA shouldn't accept back an APNIC block if RIPE is the
one trying to return it?
