[arin-ppml] 2008-6 Combined Wording Alternative

I did not intend to say that ARIN would be involved in the agreement to transfer between holder and recipient.

My original proposal said explicitly that ARIN  would only be involved as a recorder of the transfer, not an agent in it.
Your wording seems to say that the holder would return the block of appropriate size to ARIN who would then transfer that block under RSA to the new recipient.  I avoided implying that ARIN would have any control over the block during transfer, just to avoid anyone thinking that there needed to be some protections with that.

As I said in my earlier post, I think the issue is semantic rather than real.

Thanks for you continued involvement and interest in making this proposal better...

Hi Bill,

Are you sure that has changed?

In both versions, ARIN is the arbiter of the new registrant's
qualification to receive the addresses. In both versions the new
registrant enters the same binding legal agreement with ARIN
regardless of their agreement with the old registrant. In neither
version does ARIN evaluate or record the agreement between old and new
