You're going to have to explain that particular magic to me because I
haven't heard of any way to free up netblocks for return other than
renumbering out of them.

Sure, an org might possibly have vast amounts of unrouted address
space they're just not using with all the addresses they are using
carefully crammed into an efficient /24 but what's your plan for
everybody else?
