Yes, and thanks. To be perfectly clear, I have proposed as a part of PP 124
to remove the following from the policy statement in

"This  reduction does not apply to resources received via section 8.3. An
organization receiving a transfer under section 8.3 may continue to  request
up to a 12-month supply of IP addresses."

The effect would be that transfers would also be subject to a three-month
window of need.
