That is not what RIPE and ARIN state. They specifically use the word "lease".
"The global IPv6 policies in this document are based upon the understanding
that address space is lease-licensed for use rather than owned. All
Internet Registries are expected to manage address space operations
correctly in accordance with this principle."
"In regard to the criteria that "organizations who are granted initial
allocations, but after two years no longer satisfy the requirements above,
are subject to having their allocations revoked", the following model was
proposed for allocations:
- Addresses are "leased", assignments are not permanent"
Many more examples.
