indeed, "legacy holder" is not an exclusive property. one can be a
"legacy and non-legacy holder", and that's what the community driven
policies in the ARIN region have encouraged. if ipv6 space is needed,
it's available. i can see how it might seem unfair to have received one
kind of resource without fee and to then be asked to pay a fee for some
other kind of resource. hopefully the unfairness in getting new
resources for free even though others in like situations have to pay a
fee is even more obvious.
