Ah ok, I misunderstood earlier.

While I'm not married to the 2+2, I do believe it should be
1+something, at a minimum.

Today when someone makes a request of ARIN they do so to get a 1
year supply (a recent change).  If addresses were transferred away
under a market plan prior to that one year timeframe, it seems to
me there is an extremely high chance something bad happened, like
the requestor lying about how much space they had free, or about
their needs for the future.

While we could waste a lot of resources by having ARIN staff do
extra checks on resources transferred away prior to 1 year, it seems
more reasonable to me to have the first timeframe be at least one
year so that situation does not occur.  Basically, let's not encourage
people to cheat the system.

Beyond that I don't have a strong opinion on what the actual timeframes
should be.
