NRPM 8.3 is the policy related to "Specified Transfers".

The Specified Transfer Listing Service is a process and it says:

"ARIN’s Specified Transfer Listing Service (STLS) provides a mechanism
by which validated organizations may identify potentially
complementary parties suitable to participate in a transfer of IPv4
number resources per ARIN’s Number Resource Policy Manual, section
8.3, “Transfers to Specified Recipients”

That's a direct linkage and from my perspective its adjunct policy.

I'm not sure why you are saying that this is optional. It certainly
does not appear to be optional. As usual, thanks for the explanation.

Best,
