>I dont think it would have ramifications if we don't sign. It clearly states on their web page they will not reclaim the space:

Note that ARIN will not reclaim unutilized address space from legacy 
holders who sign this RSA, nor will ARIN attempt to take away legacy 
resources from organizations who choose not to sign it. However, signing 
the Legacy RSA contractually locks in a set of rights, and thus reduces 
the risk of future change to a minimum.

Id go ahead and do it. It locks us in on these addresses at $100 a year 
until 2013 - AMAZING - and they will only increase by $25 per year after 
that pt.
Id make sure any templates come from jcrowell at dcn.davis.ca.us and JC do 
all the interfacing, as it might minimize the need for additional 
documentation if they get it all rom the actual org contact from the 
legacy allocation.
