 From the SIDR working group mailing list:

"Think about corporate acquisitions for a moment.  EngulfAndDevour,
headquartered in region A, buys MomAndPopISP, in region B.
MomAndPopISP is a going concern whose founders want to retire, grow
tomatoes, and deal with no unit of time shorter than a season.
EngulfAndDevour has paid heavily for good will of MomAndPopISP's
customer base and wants MomAndPopISP's routing to continue to work
during transfer of MomAndPopISP's resources from region B to region A.
Any downtime at all is unacceptable.  Hence make-before-break."

Can someone confirm if resources are being transferred between RIR's 
today as part of corporate acquisition/divestitures?  If so, under what 
policy?  Can someone site examples of this being done?  I'm curious as 
to how the records are managed.
