The wording of the question and response referred only to "ARIN members". That does not include most orgs with _only_ legacy allocations, but it would include orgs with both legacy and non-legacy allocations. Presumably, if an org had both types, both would have been included, but that wasn't explicitly stated since it wasn't relevant to the questions I was asking at the time.
If you are interested in who those 73 Xtra Large orgs are, you can try asking ARIN. If that level of detail is covered by NDA, you can get a close approximation by mining WHOIS or BGP.
