Hi Folks,

Transparency issues seem to underpin some of the complaints in this
thread. John assures us that the community's process was followed for
this very large transfer of addresses, but as the developers of that
process we're not allowed to look under the hood and evaluate how the
process actually played out. This is, of course, consistent with the
privacy expectations that we as a community wanted, or at least
thought we wanted.

Should we reconsider the transparency requirements that go in to IPv4
allocations and transfers? Is there a size of IPv4 consumption above
which an organization should not have an expectation of privacy with
respect to their documentation? A consumption so large that it must be
subject to public scrutiny in all details?

Offered as food for thought.
