Only if by "transfer" you narrowly define it to be "change the 
registration database through the transfer process to point to the 
acquiring entity".

As has been pointed out, there's lots of other ways to "transfer 
resources outside of the policies", including updating the POC records 
on legacy resources, leaving the registration database as-is but issuing 
LOAs, etc.

Unless you believe that there's a way for ARIN to prohibit legacy 
non-RSA, non-LRSA block holders from doing these things.
