I don't remember during the discussion of this proposal someone making a
point for legacy resources once transferred to remain with legacy
status. It doesn't make sense at all.
In all RIRs I know any legacy resources once transferred looses the
legacy status and that makes *a lot of sense* in order to end up with a
historical distortion to the system and favor resources end up on
organizations who really justify for them now a days.

Can the Co-Chairs point in which part of the discussion of this proposal
this claim was made in order to consider that a rough consensus ? I have
searched in the RPD Archives on the content of this discussion for
months and couldn't find any mention to this point.
