Hm... I suggest ARIN revise the 8.3 transfer policy to make it clear
and require an unconditional release of addresses to ARIN first.

Then a resource review of the recipient will be conducted, and they
will be required
to sign the regular RSA to obtain the addresses.  There should also be
a limitation
of _how often_ an organization is allowed to receive addresses by transfer.

Say a 5-6 month waiting period.    If  the exact number of addresses
they are allowed
to transfer is a 12-month supply,  then a 4-5 month waiting period between
receiving 8.3 transfer addresses should not be a burden.

If the recipient of addresses happens to not be eligible to receive
the addresses,
then ARIN should waitlist the addresses, and immediately provide them to someone
who is eligible.

Rationale:   If you are willing to dispose of addresses by specified transfer,
that is de facto evidence your organization no longer needs those IP addresses.

A failed 8.3 transfer should not result in the addresses reverting to
the organization
initiating the transfer
