Ok, works for me. We're almost back to the language from 2008-2 version

I don't think that's a concern, because 8.3.5 says that "interested
transferor *may* seek pre-qualification". Since it's optional, it can't
really hold anything up.

Generally ARIN is aware when a company has more than one Org ID (and
usually for good reason). So most of the time this wouldn't require any
extra resources on ARIN's part. ARIN's fraud-detection sensors have
gotten pretty good (I hear), so I have no doubt they'd have resources to
check up on things when there's reason for suspicion. I don't think
they'd be routinely checking through SEC filings on every request that
comes in, though. :)
