No formal agreement, but those involved in ARIN’s formation did indicate that at transition 
the existing registrations would be maintained without a need for agreement or fee.

The ARIN Board has maintained that same position over the last 25 years –
I’d expect that to continue similarly unless a strong reason emerged why that is no 
longer advisable and/or the community reached consensus on different approach.
