Noted.  There have been some requests for IPv6 specified transfers to allow resolution
of "recordkeeping" issues (just as several of the IPv4 transfers to date have been), 
where a party may have delegated a portion of their address space but no longer has a 
formal relationship to recipient and wants to permanently note the actual user of a 
particular address block.   While not necessarily an option that will be wildly used, 
the ability to transfer IPv6 address blocks may improve Whois accuracy in some cases.
