ARIN is not a regulator.  The "jump" is from not paying for services
that you have no contract for to paying for services that you do have a
contract for.

Signing an RSA to get new space does not _in any way_ "endanger" or
otherwise affect legacy resources.  Putting legacy resources under LRSA
(or RSA, if you wished) is a completely separate action and is, for now
at least, completely optional.  You do not need to set up a separate
organization; all that does is waste your time and ARIN's.
