IMHO a policy that *allows* return of blocks to IANA upon request by IANA would be ok. I am not in favor of policy that *requires* return of blocks whether IANA wants them or not.
Having said that consider that a "MAY" in absence of "MAY NOT" is a no-op. The policy may be specious. If there is no law prohibiting me from wearing red socks then while it sounds good a permit to wear red socks is rather meaningless and wasteful.
