In general, ARIN does not apply new policies to blocks already issued. 

We are capable of applying new policies to previously issued address 
blocks, but such changes should be very carefully considered due to 
potential implications (and actual application to any given block may be
constrained by the terms and conditions with the applicable registration
service agreement.)  Examples of where new policies have been applied
to existing blocks are generally proposals clearly expressed as registry
wide, e.g. addition of the abuse contact, point-of-contact validation, etc;
ARIN staff otherwise interprets the policy as applicable to new blocks
as they are being issued.
