Yep. Just went through this with one organization which I hadn't realized
at the time was a legacy IPv4 holder. The fees were a surprise (I thought
they'd already been paying those fees). Needless to say, their IPv6 plans
are on hold indefinitely.

But they're not exactly the same terms. ARIN 'terms' for the legacy
holder probably didn't exist at the time of their IPv4 allocation.
