carefully note the "or".
If you first move it under ARIN's jurisdiction (by signing an RSA) and *then* transfer it to RIPE, it won't be "legacy" any more in the course of the 2nd step and RIPE's 2-yr holding period comes into play (=> it can't be transferred during that time).
Note also there's voices recommending not to sign an RSA for legacy space (in certain situations, at least), see http://ipv4marketgroup.com/dont-sign-an-rsa-during-your-82-ipv4-transfer/.
