There are two points to analyze in this proposal:

- Any returned, reclaimed or revoked addresses that belong originally to
the reserved pools to be returned to them. I think this was pretty
obvious and was already done this way and wouldn't be necessary to state
it again. Could the author show that this is not the way it is currently
done then I am fine to support this part.

I'm not sure how ARIN staff does this now. However, if this is what we want, it is usually better for it to be clearly stated in the policy.

Blocks designated as special use are put back in whichever pool they belong to, 4.4 or 4.10, respectively.

It is certainly the case that if you wanted ARIN to do something different than that, the alternative would need to be clearly spelt out in policy – the highly obvious nature of returning blocks to their special pools doesn’t necessarily require any specification in policy, unless it is being done to avoid having such blocks inadvertently become subject to new policy language.
