It is possible for such resource holders to return such space to ARIN, but you don’t have to be an economist to understand why they don’t and haven’t for the most part.


I refer you to ARIN RSA Version 12.0 Section 7:


Holder acknowledges and agrees that: (a) the Included Number Resources are not property (real, personal, or intellectual) of Holder; (b) Holder does not and will not have or acquire any property rights in or to Included Number Resources by virtue of this Agreement; (c) Holder will not attempt, directly or indirectly, to obtain or assert any patent, trademark, service mark or copyright in any number resources in the United States or any other country; and (d) Holder will transfer or receive Included Number Resources in accordance with the Policies.
