I am opposed to the reclamation period only because it is too long.
I propose 1 year unless during that year it is disputed then it would be extended in 6 month increments to a maximum of 3 years to account for a dispute process such as court litigation.
Additionally, I feel in certain cases there should be constraints for immediate reuse such as a declaration or settlement signed by the verified current IP assignee.

ARIN-prop-150 Reclamation Hold
Proposal Originator: Matthew Kaufman
Proposal Version: 1
Date: 13 May 2011
Proposal type: new
Policy term: permanent
Add a new section to the NRPM:
"All resources reclaimed by ARIN shall not be returned to the free pool
or otherwise reassigned to any entity than the original registrant for a
period of 36 months."
As the pressures on the system become greater with IPv4 runout, there
will be more call for ARIN to reclaim address space. When addresses that
are reclaimed are reused too soon, a variety of undesirable outcomes may
result. This provides sufficient time for the resources to go unused
prior to reassignment and/or to be re-justified by the original
registrant, or returned to the proper holder in the case of hijackings.
This policy could be restricted to IPv4 space, but it may be useful for
AS numbers and has no major impact on IPv6 space (due to the large free
pool), so it might as well apply to all.
Timetable for implementation: immediate
