I'm not sure you can revoke what you do not control. Legacy ASN's are on
the same bus as legacy IPv4 assets. We already know that revoking legacy v4
addresses is unlikely in at the very least the bankruptcy circumstance. Why
would legacy ASN's be any different? I believe this thread has demonstrated
that they do in fact have "value".
