[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal 2010-10 - Global Policy for IPv4 Allocations by the IANA Post Exhaustion

I think the transfer policy is important, but at Owen states, an enabling policy is also very important and possibly the policy could move forward without it if language was added that somehow required the transfer policy in the future.
Also, and I may be mistaken on this, doesn't IANA have a policy in which they are preferencing /8 allocations to RIRs that service developing nations? If they do, what happens if final /8 blocks start to run out and then the RIRs that should be getting those /8 allocations cannot get the blocks they need. I worry that AfriNIC and LACNIC will end up getting shafted here.

Just drop the transfer restriction in my opinion. The other RIRs can choose not to return space until the transfer issue is rectified, but at least we would have enabling policy at IANA.
