Short of any additional guidance in the policy, I can explain how ARIN
staff would implement that language. In the case of ARIN, we would
maintain of a list of RIRs which we've reviewed and concur implement
the principles in RFC 2050. I imagine that the other RIRs would make
similar assessments & lists, and in the case of mutual alignment, then
inter-RIR transfers would be possible.
This actually shouldn't be too difficult, since it is common for the RIRs
to reference these principles in their policy framework and further that
each RIR has agreed to them as part of setting the ICANN ICP-2 global
policy for recognition of an Regional Internet Registry.
The language appears to be far more likely relevant if a RIR to abandon
the stewardship principles in the future, as then we would not be able to
participate in transfers via that entity (i.e. whether such an entity would
still qualify as an RIR under such circumstances is a different question)
Does this address your question?
