Matthew,

Thanks for taking the initiative on this.  I think a number of us agree that
there are some good opportunities to tweak transfer policy now that we have
started to see the effects of 8.3 in the real world.  I know there were
several other community members looking to propose tweaks as well, so I
would encourage everyone considering such changes to do a small amount of
coordination here on PPML before submitting proposals to policy at arin.net.
 Putting up a quick note with a summary of your idea and/or sample text and
soliciting co-authors should be enough to get the folks interested in a
particular idea all working together...

I know there were discussions in Puerto Rico for two changes: increasing the
window for justified need under 8.3 from 12 months to 24, and changing or
removing the single-aggregate requirement.  Not sure if there are other
changes people have been considering as well...

Thanks,
Scott
