Mike -

Per the most recent staff assessmentment of 2011-1 - 

  "3.  Resource Impact

   This policy would have major  resource impact from an implementation 
   aspect.  It is estimated that implementation would occur within 9-12 
   months after ratification by the ARIN Board of Trustees. The following 
   would be needed in order to implement:

   -Careful coordination between the RIRs on DNS issues and updates
   -Updated guidelines
   -Staff training"

In short, there are significant issues in inter-RIR coordination which
makes the implementation very challenging.  For example, the reverse DNS
services for a transferred block may still be served by the original RIR
even after transfer.  As many of us have automated systems for managing
registry changes, it is not clear whether cross-system automation will 
be practical for InterRIR transfers, and these types of issues need to 
be discussed between RIRs before the planning for the necessary changes
can be accomplished or a decision is made to manually synchronize any
changes for some period of time.
