"two RIRs agree" is slightly fuzzy. I suggest slightly  more words:

"so long as the transfer is consistent with both RIR policies for the
inter-region transfer of addresses."

I'd also ditch the stewardship line. It adds fuzziness that's
difficult to evaluate in a practical and consistent way. Besides, if
both RIRs set policy to a different standard of stewardship, why tie
their hands?
