Carlos -

In the case of ARIN that would be incorrect, as ARIN has revoked legacy address space from parties that have violated registry policies.

ARIN registry policies are applicable to all parties in the registry - those legacy holders under RSA do have specific terms and conditions (and a reduced fee schedule), but ARIN registry policies are applicable regardless and violation can have consequence.
