I heard a number of people express the opinion that we don't want to set 
a permanent precedent allowing transfers of IPv6 (and ASN).  Both 2008-2 
and 2008-6 were very explicit that transfers were only being allowed as 
a result of the extraordinary circumstance of IPv4 exhaustion, and that 
such transfers would not be allowed for any other type of number resource.

I believe it would be appropriate to restore such a limitation to 
section 8.3 of 2009-1.
