[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2009-1: Transfer Policy – Revised and forwarded to the Board

This is completely restating the whole Transfer section of the NRPM, section 
#8, including the Transfers that are allowed today in the current NRPM.

Section 8.2 "Mergers and Acquisitions", actually does apply to all number 
resources including IPv6 and ASNs as it should.  This section is in the NPRM 
today and it currently applies to IPv4, IPv6, and ASNs.  If you buy a company 
or merge with another company you need to be able to transfer the 
resources of the company to the new company, including IPv6 and ASNs.  
This constitutes nothing new, it simple does some minor edits and 
reorganization of the NRPM text.

Section 8.3 "Transfers to Specified Recipients", is unambiguous to me, it 
only applies to IPv4.  This is what is actually new and constitutes a more 
liberal transfer policy for IPv4 only, etc...

Hope that helps;
