ARIN-prop-183 Section 8.4 Transfer enhancement

Proposal Originator: Martin Hannigan

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 29 October 2012

Proposal type: MODIFY

Policy term: PERMANENT

Policy statement:

Modify the following text in Section 8.4

Change all occurrences of "IPv4 number resources" to "IPv4 number
resources and ASNs".
Change all occurrences of  "IPv4 address resources" to "IPv4 number
resources and ASNs".


We already allow transfer of ASNs within the ARIN region. The change
will accomplish two things. First there is inconsistent language in
8.4 eg "IPv4 Address" v. "IPv4 Number Resource(s)" and second, it will
allow the transfer of ASNs between RIRs through 8.4 and using the
standards we have already established for IPv4 transfers. For many of
the same reasons that we allow transfer of IP addresses, we should
allow transfers of ASNs and to help insure that idle resources are
both recovered and utilized efficiently and where needed.
