Since they pre-exist the RIR, it's not clear that any one RIR has authority until asked.

(For a discussion of rights, authority, etc, see http://ciara.fiu.edu/publications/Rubi%20-%20Property%20Rights%20in%20IP%20Numbers.pdf)

Thus, I think the legacy address holders will have to request "services" from an RIR.  Or from a trusted third party.

(For instance, see http://www.circleid.com/posts/competition_to_regional_internet_registries_rir_for_post_allocation_service/)
