The problem is: that wasn't the original intent.

The original intent was to minimize disaggregation. The language was
never intended to prevent multiple whole blocks from being
transferred. It got butchered by more than a single "and."

If you want to get close to the original intent, try something along
the lines of, "Organizations may transfer multiple address blocks but
no organization shall offer nor shall any organization receive more
than one address block per year where said address block is smaller
than its original registered size."
