I don't see any downside to signing the RSA, but I'm still
trying to hypothesize problem scenarios.  The $100/yr annual fee
seems more than fair.

There are likely some technical problems should we decide to
relinquish our hold on some of our address space, but they'd be
ARIN's problem, probably not ours.

Let me know whether it should be I who fills out the online form.
(I may need some details about DCN contact information.)
