There is an hierarchy regarding the legacy space:
1. Legacy Space as a whole
2. Idle Legacy Space [There are indeed legacy spaces in use, and not idle]
3. Hijacked and now recovered Idle legacy Space. [There are some legacy
spaces that can never be reclaimed by their initial allotees, probably
because they are out of business, and there is no successor organization]
I presume you are talking about 2 and 3. I am talking about 1.
Perhaps we should look at addressing 1, 2, & 3.
