LIRs are prevented from implementing this sort of policy since such
reserved addresses do not count towards their utilization. What
problems are solved by implementing this policy at an RIR level but
requiring LIRs to not implement the same?

This could be solved with a much weaker requirement: "ARIN shall not
reallocate recovered address space while its status is under dispute
by a prior registrant."
