It seems evident that a RIR can't revoke legacy space. Ever.

The RIRs have (through the years) found ways to provide services to legacy 
resource holders.

If a legacy resource holder goes "rogue", revokation is still NOT 
possible, however, the RIR might want to reconsider if it should continue 
providing services to that company/party...
