Specifically, the general feeling expressed in the ARIN community as
I understood it was that ARIN could not support mandatory returns to a
pool which would be subsequently subjected to APNIC's abandonment
of needs basis in their transfer policy. ARIN could not support the
return of addresses to a pool where they might be allocated
or transfered without respect to the needs basis principle.

(speaking only for myself and of my observations of the community
debate at ARIN)
