[arin-ppml] Integrating Draft Policy ARIN-2011-1 into NRPM 8.3

There may be some other policy or legal reason that either RIR may wish to block the
transfer and I want to give staff the ability to address unforeseen circumstances in a
complicated and shifting environment that could change without input through our
PDP by doing the closest they can come to "the right thing" based on sound judgment
rather than being ratholed by our policy which cannot possibly adapt fast enough.

But ARIN has said that, as things stand today, the lack of explicit needs basis in APNIC's transfer policy would make it incompatible with 2011-1's requirement for "compatible, needs-based transfer policies".  I hope we can come to an agreement with the APNIC community on language or interpretation that would be compatible with both regions' needs and preferences, but 2011-1 as I see it is just the first step in that direction: setting up a framework that would allow inter-RIR transfers once such incompatibilities are resolved somehow (or with other RIRs where such incompatibilities may not exist).

But the "RIRs agree" language is also there as a safety valve to explicitly allow an RIR to not agree to a transfer if it has reason to believe that the transfer would violate policy or law.

Such transferred number resources may only be received under RSA by organizations that are within the ARIN region and can demonstrate the need for such resources, as a single aggregate, in the exact amount which they can justify under current ARIN policies.
