Hi Bill,


> 2. If objections exist, to succinctly identify what they are..and,

a. I'm not convinced we should be contemplating inter-region transfers
prior to ARIN's free pool exhausting.
b. I'm not convinced *any* of the 5 RIRs adhere to RFC2050's "values"
except in a very loose way... which makes it a weak and subjective
place to hang a policy.

> 3. How objections might be concisely remedied in text

"ARIN shall permit the transfer of IPv4 addresses between ARIN
registrants and registrants of other RIRs provided that:

a. Both ARIN and the other RIR agree to the transfer,
b. ARIN and the other RIR have functionally reciprocal inter-region
transfer policies, and
c. Both the offering and receiving registrants qualify for the
transfer under ARIN's normal intra-region resource transfer policies
save that one of the registrants is not in the ARIN region and will
therefore not be under contract to ARIN."
