Its likely that everyone understood what you meant, but just for clarity... 
I believe that most your references in the above should be to NRPM 8.3,
the Specified Transfer policy.  The STLS (Specified Transfer Listing Service) 
is completely separate, and is simply one way parties might find each other.  
For more details on STLS, see <https://www.arin.net/resources/transfer_listing/>
Regardless of how parties find one another, they may transfer space via ARIN 
if they qualify under NRPM 8.3.
