Nortel has just blown that assumption out of the water. The fact that it is under bankruptcy court may strengthen its resolve not to be bothered with a transfer agreement involving ARIN, but I see no reason why _any_ legacy holder couldn't do the same thing. 

There is no requirement for pre-approval, but the likelihood 
of a successful transfer is greatly increased by doing so.

ARIN will maintain the Whois database for this region according
to the community-developed policies, and that includes processing
requests for transferring number resources.
