I was being sarcastic. There's almost nothing open or transparent about this.

No confirmation that 8.3 was the policy used.

No confirmation that, as per 8.3, only a single aggregate was transferred.

No confirmation that if >1 aggregate was transferred it was done as multiple transfers each with space justification individually. (noting that if this technique was used to avoid 8.3's requirement, that suggests that perhaps 8.3 should be changed)

No rebuttal to the claims that the recipient was able to avoid signing the RSA for this space.

As someone else said, we are just supposed to trust that policies were followed to the letter.
