Really?  I think the killing the rev files would be pretty effective, but I
think there are other formal ways to apply a recovery...Like filtering.

Certainly coming up with a theoretical process for the job is not a
problem.  Unfortunately, that isn't the only issue at hand.  One of the
fundamental problems is that ARIN has very little practical recourse when it
comes to re-claiming address space.  The only technical thing ARIN can do is
turn of in-addrs, which doesn't accomplish that much.
