It's not my goal, it's a goal of the members/community to figure out a
better way. From the thread, and now a proposal discussion as well, we
have some consensus that what we have now is not optimal.

I didn't answer this question since I wanted to think about it. The
unfortunate answer here is that transfer policy already doesn't apply
to legacy holders from their perspective so hoping that they will sign
an agreement seems less than efficient. I don't think that they should
sign an agreement at all if we are able to get some benefits from it
hence I think that Benson's proposal is interesting and probably worth
further development.
