You are incorrect. ARIN has reclaimed legacy resources, as legacy number resource
assignments are just a limited set of rights to entries in ARIN’s registry database and
subject to the same policies as all other registrants.
You seem to believe in some magic essence that precludes ARIN from administering its
own registry database – good luck with that – you might do better with an actual contract.
(I note that the vast majority of such cases involving revocation of legacy resources had
resources that creatively hijacked in one form or another, and the “registrant” that had
operational control disappears rather contest the revocation – thus leaving ARIN free to
see if we can find the bona fide registrant or legal successor…)
