I don't often find myself 100% agreeing with Ted, but this is one of 
those cases.  I don't believe that preventing deaggregation is 
plausible.  I suspect that attempts to do so with move parties 
interested in using the transfer policy (if approved) into the black 
market to avoid dealing with the policy limitations.

Note: "I don't believe" and "I suspect" are key to understanding my PoV 
on this issue.  I welcome enlightened argument to the contrary, at the 
cost of one beer at local pub.  If you are an interesting talker, I'll 
buy the second round ;-)
