Presumably, legacy block holders currently receiving services without 
charge would begin paying these fees upon signing the LRSA?  I imagine
a few /8 and /16 address holders might suggest that the services they
require do not cause ARIN expenses even close to the suggested fees?
This becomes even more important if you omit IPv4 from the equation.
