I don't think this analogy exactly fits.  I'm pretty sure that the legacy
space holders think of this as: a Microsoft salesman had given them
a free copy of  Windows back in 1990, and had returned many years later
to say that MS had established a registry for all new recipients of
Windows that charged a registration fee, and MS wanted them to start paying
the fee for the free copy as well.
