[arin-ppml] A Brief History Lesson

regarding legacy resources.  it is true that historically numbering
resources have been allocated/assigned to natural persons, which has always
been a problem for ARIN.  this fact is why, in part, there are two standard
versions of the registration agreement and there are three "classes" of
users, those under the registration agreement, those under the legacy
registration agreement, and those not covered by any agreement.  those not
covered are legacy assignments/allocations that predate ARIN.  As part of
ARINs charter is an agreement with the USG to honour/serve legacy holders.
Which ARIN does.  That said, ARIN goes out of its way to encourage these
folks to "onboard" with a legacy registration agreement. But there is no
overt stick to force the change w/o violating ARINs agreement with the USG.

I'm sure John will clarify, maybe even Scott might chime in.
