Please do not present your speculations as fact. For example, a detailed needs assessment was indeed performed; your lack of knowledge of it doesn't make your assertion otherwise correct, and to state that "No needs assessment as performed" as factual knowledge is simply wrong.

The party selling the resources never signed any agreement with ARIN, whether RSA or LRSA. MS (the buyer) received the resources under an LRSA, not the standard RSA. No needs assessment was performed. In other words, the transfer took place completely outside of ARIN's transfer policy.
