Thank you very much for the clarification John.

It is good to know that there has been a policy in the past for that to happen and that BoT has understood that although ARIN could be successor of  SRI/GSI/NSI-InterNIC it would not make sense in the current or even past context at that point in time these resources to be retained by ARIN.

Your opinion on the matter is noted.  I shall not opine on the view of the ARIN Board on
hypotheticals but will observe that ARIN has been responsible the overwhelming majority
of space returned the IANA IPv4 free pool.

One point to highlight is that the communication mentions "blocks that have been voluntarily returned to ARIN" which could be understood as basically any legacy blocks had necessarily to be returned to ARIN and that IANA agrees on that or if a given legacy resource holder wishes to return it directly to IANA would it be forbidden and directed by IANA to do to ARIN ?

Legacy resource holders in the ARIN registry must return their resources to ARIN.
