It is up to ARIN policy to decide whether to return that block to IANA, reallocate to new requests, etc.  And there are no technical reasons to treat address blocks differently, as far as I'm aware.

Small nuance here...

ARIN should accept return of legacy resources currently served by ARIN (in-addr, whois), regardless of the
actual current location of the legacy holder. ARIN probably should not accept return of legacy resources
served by the 4 other RIRs unless ARIN coordinates such an acceptance with the applicable RIR.
