David - 
   ARIN issues number resources under the current version of the RSA,
   so parties requesting new resources should expect to sign the most 
   current version.   The changes from RSA version 11 to 12 are based on
   changes requested by the community, and I would highly recommend that
   everyone take the opportunity to review them (even if not requesting any
   additional resources) as the terms may be more suitable to one's needs
   than those in your present registration services agreement.
