If the same prefix is transfered multiple times, will the historical
record be maintained?  E.G. org A transfers to org B on date 1, and
then org B transfers to org C on date 2, would both transfers be
reflected in the list?

If org B disaggregated the prefix and transfered part of it to org C
and part to org D, would all 3 transfers be reflected in the list
(A -> B, B -> C, B -> D)?

Would how org A acquired the prefix in the first place, and whether it
was a larger prefix than what it transfered to org B, also be reflected
in the list, or is this information already available some place else,
such as in whois, and thus redundant?

I think it is important to include exactly what information is to be
maintained in the policy proposal, or we may find out it is not as
useful as hoped.
