While there are those that disagree with me (on the board and likely on the AC too), I believe
that the lack of that requirement in 8.3 was an oversight and not the other way around.
I think that if ARIN is going to facilitate transfers between organizations, it is only prudent to
require a contractual relationship between ARIN and both organizations involved in the
process that prevents (and/or indemnifies) ARIN in the event a dispute between the
organizations later arises.
