The ARIN staff  is very careful to make sure that any reissued space is not routed so as to cause some unaware 3rd party problems with their business as well as the new holder.  ARIN also aims to avoid providing space that appears on block lists and is diligent in researching these issues.

I'd like folks on the wait list to have the option to accept "dirty"
space. Not all uses need clean address space, private internets and
IXes to name two.

That said, I agree with the other respondents that there's no urgent
need to spell this out in policy.

I think it'd be cool (though not a serious proposal) to cycle
recovered space through the TLD roots before returning it to users.
Oh, you can't reach .com anymore? How's that static filtering working
out for you?
