Oh really? Perhaps I've misunderstood. Is it ARIN's position that
everybody receiving a transfer of what were originally legacy
resources may do so under the Legacy RSA rather than be expected to
use the standard RSA? If not, how exactly do you explain ARIN's
gracious deviation on Microsoft's behalf?
