I'd ask the same question of the community, but perhaps phrased
differently due to perspective on several of your bullets above:

 - Is maintaining the needs-based requirement for the specified
   transfer policy worthwhile, recognizing that while it does 
   support the community goals, it also is likely to encourage 
   some to go outside the system, and does not align well with the 
   practices of the region closest to terminal exhaust (APNIC)?

Still an worthwhile question to ask...
