Seems to me, that if addresses are unavailable with a region....that the
requestor is a legitimate member of (there's my problem with
definition), then they can make a request or another region....but that
their request would have to conform to the policies of both RIRs.

Doesn't make sense to allow a transfer from out of region if there are
addresses available locally.
Doesn't make sense to allow someone to shop around for a more favorable
policy than their own region.
Doesn't make sense to allow someone to only have to conform to the
'local' policy if it is less stringent than the policy of the RIR it's
requesting transfer from....the RIR with available addresses would then
be placing their own constituents at a disadvantage.

If a multinational org with offices in all 5 regions needs
addresses...which are now only available in 1 region, they would have to
conform to that regions policy.  No different that requesting those
resources today.
