I am a little confused.  If an organization is operating with 'Legacy' space with no documents or agreements with ARIN how is it supposed that an agreement is required?  Current support of Legacy space is currently done under a courteous understanding.  

To my way of thinking if the existing holder transfers the addresses to another organization ARIN no longer has any obligation, ethical or otherwise to maintain the 'courteous relationship ' with the new organization and may require an RSA or LRSA per existing policy.  I don't see anything placing any onus on the relinquishing organization or understand how ARIN could legally or ethically place requirements on the relinquishing organization with whom they have no agreement.
