I don't have a problem with justified need for transfers. I *do* have a
problem with creating large sets of people who can't even *use*
transfers to fulfill their needs because the 3-month limit *they* are
subject to is a lot different operationally than the 12-month limit the
rest of the transfer recipients are subject to.
I do not see how someone can operate a business that will still need
IPv4 addresses in order to function and yet be limited to only getting
three months at a time via transfer when their competitors are allowed
to get 12 months at a time via transfer.
Sure... back when there was a free pool, making them jump through the
extra hoops every 3 months to show that they're doing the right thing
makes (some) sense... but once there isn't, every time they get space
might be their last.
