The two transfer types (direct vs RIR) deal with different pools of
the same resource.  Both are finite but one is shrinking and the other
growing.  Therefor it may be logical to treat them differently in

In other words, the argument could be made that because direct
transfers were instituted to create/allow liquidity in
"post-allocation" IPv4 space; they should be as unrestricted as
possible, so that such post-allocation IPv4 can flow naturally to
where it is most needed (from where it is not).  On the other hand,
unallocated IPv4 space is something that we _will_ run out of and thus
should be spread to as many Orgs as possible before we do.
