Would an organization that wants to preserve some (potential
perceived) rights by not signing an LRSA intend to use the ARIN
transfer process?

It is probably true that everyone has a price, and at a high
enough offer an organizations point of view can be altered,
but if the offers of compensation that use the ARIN transfer
process get high enough, those that were previously reluctant
will swam to ARIN to sign the LRSA to "cash in" quickly while
they still can (if they ever intended to so).
