This is half the issue. The second is a perception that if one could 
transfer legacy non-LRSA resources to another party without that party 
having to sign the LRSA, those might in fact be slightly more valuable 
to said third party (and thus command a higher price).

It isn't necessarily of benefit to ARIN to further this dichotomy, so 
this is a harder one to solve.. but the first one is probably more 
important (and easier) to solve if we want to.
