For one thing, section 8.2 transfers occur because an organization and
its network has new ownership. The organization hasn't changed. It's
not even necessarily a transfer, it may just be a name change. The RSA
rules belong under section 8.3 only, which is where we thought we had

For another, this language is needlessly verbose. "The recipient of an
8.3 transfer shall sign and adhere to the same RSA as a recipient of
number resources under NRPM section 4." Nothing more needs be said.
