Hi, > Is that wise? See the InterNIC and handles... > A handle should not be reused within a certain period of time (days, > weeks?), but a reuse should most certainly be possible.

Ripe is not in the bussiness of assigning vanity license plates, handles or ip addresses. They run a database. I would prefer a clean policy on not reusing handles ever to a compilicated and error prone recycling policy. Remeber that detecting if a handle is still used seomwhere uis getting more complicated every day with the multiple distributed registries worldwide. Reusing handles is asking for trouble.
