Fundamentally disagree. Policy for handing out the last of the free pool of IPv4 (which has already become much MORE restrictive, now that we are subject to the "last /8" policies) should be different than policy for approving transfer recipients. There is no reason to believe, for instance, that we are in the "last /8" of transfers. And no new entrant post-runout will spend the time and money attempting to acquire only what they can justify for a 3-month period.
