ARIN is debating a similar question, but the "precedent" issue is a red-herring.

We make our own policies.  We have recently ratified an unprecedented
policy regarding reverse delegation and the sky hasn't fallen yet.

No.  How can a Registry with no more (for some value of "no more" ) v4
resources compete with one which has resources which will last for
several more years?.
