Per RFC 2050, IP address space is allocated to each of the RIRs
according to its established need. Referring to such address
space as OUR addresses (with the implication that it is to be
used in region due to our imminent need) does make perfect sense.
However, I also want to note that we collectively departed from
RFC 2050 with both the final /8 and the cleanup of the various
registries space. There was never an application by ARIN to the
IANA to receive this space, and while it may still be "OUR" space,
it is not a function of any need from ARIN or the application of
any special conservation efforts.
I believe that we should appropriately safeguard the resources
assigned to this region, but wanted to note that our bounty is
likely more of circumstance than planning.
Note - another option (if the community is concerned about ARIN's
free pool being depleted for future xfers) would be to simply
disqualify all space issued henceforth from ARIN's available pool
from future specified transfer until the ARIN has no free space
remaining. This is an imperfect control (due to the ability with
some effort to swap out older assignments) but might be sufficient
under the circumstances.
