	could you provide 4 numbers for me please?

	) % of ARIN managed resource covered by standard RSA?
	) % of ARIN managed legacy resource covered by legacy RSA?
	) % of ARIN managed legacy resource not otherwise covered?
	) % of ARIN region entities (A & B above) that have offices/relationships
	  with other RIRs that have a divergent transfer process in place?

	I think your analysis might be true for my first bucket, am less sure it would
	work for the remaining three.
