So you believe it's in the interest of those of us who have signed RSAs and LRSAs to subsidize (through our annual fees) those who want free registry services even though they refuse to adhere to the number resource policy in our region. That policy, in part, requires that the recipient of a legacy resource transfer, who  by definition cannot be a legacy allocation recipient, sign an RSA and contribute toward the cost of providing those registry services.

Just FYI - the ARIN Board of Trustees has consistently indicated that ARIN should
provide the same basic services to legacy resource holders without charge, so that 
they may make use of the number resources with minimal effort.   We do encourage 
them to enter into an LRSA both to share in costs and receive clear contractual 
rights, but there is no obligation for them to do in order to continue to receive
registry systems (and this is similar to the RIPE 605 section re "No Relationship")
