Hi Owen,

If that's the consensus goal then put together some verbiage for 8.3
that hits these five points:

a. Any registrant may offer an entire ARIN IPv4 address block
registration for transfer without restriction.

b. Any registrant may offer part of an ARIN IPv4 address block
registration with a prefix no longer than /24 for transfer. /8 through
/24 allowed, /25 through /32 prohibited.

c. Transfers under 8.3 are only received as fulfillment of an ordinary
section 4 request following all ordinary policies and procedures under
section 4. To the extent that turns out to obstruct reasonable
behavior, we'll fix it in section 4.

d. Any registrant may receive any number of address blocks from (a) as
needed to fulfill their ARIN-approved section 4 request.

e. Any registrant may receive no more than $N discontiguous address
blocks per $UNIT_TIME from (b) as needed to fulfill their approved
section 4 request. So if you buy a partial fill, shop wisely.

I use a set of $1500 Cisco 2811's. The size of the table is not a
major economic concern for my employer. What's more, as a leaf node
I'm able to employ a default route and do some filtering if I need to
prolong the life of my router.

So no, I don't think that every purchaser has the same impetus towards
aggregation. Frank has it right when he says:
