Close, I would say that:
"The IPv4 block transferred must be one administered by ARIN, either as
part of an address block assigned by IANA to ARIN, or as part of a
legacy address block allocated within the ARIN service area."

OK, so it's:
"...may seek pre-qualification from ARIN to authenticate its prior
assignment or allocation of the address resources offered for transfer
and its compliance with transfer time limits."
The idea is just to avoid purely discretionary blockages of transfers.
But if I'm getting to be too much like a lawyer, shoot me.

Sure, it's another speculation check, understood. Does ARIN have the
resources to check compliance with the reporting requirements?
