NRPM 12.6 guarantees at least six months to renumber after the review is
complete, except in cases of fraud or violation of policy.  While the
wording could probably be better, as I didn't anticipate the STLS, the
intent was that those who merely had insufficient utilization would
qualify for the "grace period".

One could also read 12.4 as allowing ARIN to use its "reasonable
judgment" to ignore resources with a bona fide listing in the STLS when
doing a review.

That concern was one of the motivations behind NRPM 12.
