To put it into perspective, the waiting list has people on it from over 18 months ago albeit asking for comparatively large blocks.  There are wait-listed requests for a /24, the smallest they'll deal in via that process, that are getting close to a year old.

With how much IPv4 space is now worth in the specified recipient transfer market, I would suspect almost everybody with existing space will be making use of that with ARIN basically getting "returned" space largely via people failing to pay their ARIN fees.
