A similar provision exists in APNIC's transfer policy which makes selling 
organization ineligible to receive any further IPv4 address allocations 
or assignments for a period of 12 months after the transfer (or until APNIC 
reaches its austerity phase with 1 final allocation allowed per organization
from their final /8 of space) <http://www.apnic.net/policy/transfer-policy>

I'm expressing neither support or concern over the provision, but believe 
as "running code", it's information that the community should be aware of
in this discussion.
