Well, owners of so-called "legacy" IPv4 address blocks have... according
to what I have been told... indeed tried very very hard to make that case
that they never opted in to the present allocation system and that thus,
they are not in any way subject to or bound by it's rules.

That is a longstanding and thorny problem.  But I believe that it is
largely or entirely orthogonal to the changes contemplated by ARIN-prop-266.
