I think this is important to keep in, so can we get the exact phrase 
that is in conflict from the RSA Section 6 in this thread for 
comparison. I included it, please adjust if not correct..

(Personally I would like to spend more time on the 'no longer justified 
under ARIN Policy part..')

Whenever a transfer or additional IP address space is requested by 
Holder, ARIN may review Holder’s utilization of previously allocated or 
assigned number resources and other Services received from ARIN to 
determine if Holder is complying with the Service Terms. Except as set 
forth in this Agreement,
   (i) ARIN will take no action to reduce the Services currently 
provided for Included Number Resources due to lack of utilization by the 
Holder, and
   (ii) ARIN has no right to revoke any Included Number Resources under 
this Agreement due to lack of utilization by Holder. However, ARIN may 
refuse to permit transfers or additional allocations of number resources
to Holder if Holder’s Included Number Resources are not utilized in 
accordance with Policy.

I have more of a problem with the RSA statement...

ARIN Enforcement is a challenge enough, and with the dearth of IP, it 
seems that there are many cases for reclaimation's.

It can allow a loophole where people can hold on the the valuable 
resource, and just play the transfer game ..
