Hi Enno,

The article says:

"Never sign an RSA as part of bringing your registry entry up to date,
unless you are in the process of a transfer for an IPv4 sale"

I agree with that statement. But, the situation here *IS* a transfer
for an IPv4 sale. If you want to do the transfer, the originating
registration has to be under a registration services agreement (RSA).
As a legacy registrant, the LRSA is slightly more advantageous than
the regular RSA.

If the legacy registrant is actually in Europe, you might get away
with bypassing ARIN. I wouldn't try it if they aren't.
