Can we ask which policy was used?  Section 8.3, the most obvious,
requires an RSA, and that the block be released to ARIN.  Since we
have an LRSA and the block went directly to Microsoft the community is
left to assume 8.3 was not used.

That pretty much only leaves section 8.2 as a way to transfer space.
Thus at this point in time I must assume a section 8.2 M&A deal was
performed.  In particular, the 8.2 policy requires "ARIN will
maintain an up-to-date list of acceptable types of documentation.",
may I ask where that list is kept on the ARIN web site, and if it
includes an order from a bankruptcy court?
