Exactly… It turns out that dissolved isn’t necessarily a permanent state, and in addition
“dissolved” doesn’t mean that the rights necessarily and automatically revert to the ARIN
community – there may be one or more parties that has potential claim to the resources,
either via bankruptcy or provisions of the corporate wind down.

Question here John: if the resources are legacy and they were assigned before ARIN existence, these resources should ideally be reverted back to IANA which in turn should apply the Post Exhaustion Global Policy from May 6th 2021 and re-distribute these blocks to all RIRs ?

Incorrect - ARIN is the successor registry for these assignments made by SRI/GSI/NSI-InterNIC
and so they are returned to ARIN.

To the extent determined by ARIN policy and ARIN’s Board of Trustees, number resources that
are revoked, returned, or reclaimed by ARIN may be returned to the IANA and then would qualify
as "Any IPv4 space returned to the IANA by any means” as stated the referenced global policy.

This has occurred in the past - https://www.arin.net/vault/announcements/2012/20120611.html

ARIN Returns Some IPv4 Address Space to IANA

Posted: Monday, 11 June 2012

Given the recent ICANN Board adoption of Global Policy Proposal - IPv4–2011, the ARIN Board of Trustees at its 6 June meeting directed ARIN staff to return to the IANA the IPv4 address blocks that have been voluntarily returned to ARIN in recent years. The total amount of space being returned to the IANA amounts to roughly a /8 equivalent and includes the large block of IPv4 addresses returned to ARIN by Interop in 2010.

Below is the final list of address space that has been returned to the IANA and this will be reflected in ARIN's database within the next few hours.
