While I would be fine with ARIN fulfilling your request with 2 /24s that were already disjoint, however, I don't want to see someone with, say, 44/8 find a buyer that needs a /20 and sell them 44.0.5/24, 44.0.8/24, 44.15.23/24, 44.28.6/24, etc.

How about this:

"The transferor's resources may be recursively bisected the minimum number of times necessary to create one CIDR block equal to the transferee's justified need."

So, if someone with a /8 wants to sell you a /20, their /8 would be divided into one /9, one /10, one /11, one /12, one /13, one /14, one /15, one /16, one /17, one /18, one /19 and two /20s, and then you would get one of those /20s.

Would it perhaps be simpler to say that transfers of sub-blocks (partial transfers?) must be done on CIDR boundaries from the edge (extremity?) of the donor block ?
