What urgent need for a transfer policy?  Why does this keep getting restated
as though it is established fact.  I have not seen a community consensus
that there is a need for a transfer policy.  There are a few vocal
individuals that voice the need for a transfer policy until some accept it
as fact.  

There is no need for a transfer policy.  We have a policy for reassignment
of IP blocks.  We do not need a new policy unless the goal is to make profit
from the transfer.
