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.

The three month restriction is a temporary abomination in the IPv4 policies related to runout.

The rest of the policy is not specially restrictive related to runout.

That temporary abomination is specifically exempted in 8.3, so, you already have exactly what
you have stated is needed above.

There is no need for a policy change.
