[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2011-1 - Inter-RIR Transfers - Shepherd's Inquiry

{evil top post}

I *think* I agree with what Bill is saying.  ARIN should be free to do inter-RIR transfers with caveats.  IMHO the transfers should not be longer than /8 unless they complete a /8 for the receiver, and there should be no transfers if ARIN has a current or foreseeable need.
