Steven -

Given that anyone can participate in the discussion (i.e. there is no requirement 
to have any agreement with ARIN or be an ARIN member) and further that it would only 
take a couple of dozen additional participants to materially affect the outcome of 
the policy development process, one can only surmise that perceived need for policy
change is relatively small compared to the effort to participate.  We've done quite 
a bit to reduce the overhead of participating (e.g. remote participation options),
but it is still incumbent up to those who perceive the need for policy changes to 
to participate in the process.  Note that if even a fraction of a percent of the
legacy address holders felt it necessary to become involved for a particular policy 
change, then it would happen.
