I think experience shows that the current interpretation of the language reduces cost for everyone involved, and that restoring the "original intent" changes absolutely nothing... in other words, transfers of 660,000 addresses from multiple blocks will still occur between a pair of entities, only this time it'll be a whole raft of need justification and transfer request forms instead of just one.
