As others have stated there are two considerations here:

1) Does this belong in policy?
The response to prop-134 here on arin-ppml included questions along
the lines of "what problem does this policy solve?" If you believe
that there is a clear benefit to having this current operational
detail codified in policy, then the second consideration should be

2) What is the community consensus view of a legitimate address holder?
I would strongly suggest that any new attempt at defining this in
policy start with a poll of the community at large (as opposed to
starting with a preconceived definition). IMHO, the best approach
would be to find/build consensus around the definition of 'legitimate
address holder' and only once that is done (rough consensus counts),
write a policy proposal to codify it. A good place to start is
probably with current ARIN staff practice, since that has served us
very well thus far (I can't name an incident caused by it, perhaps
others know of problems I am unaware of).
