IMO, yes, there should be a stringent justification for need for free pool addresses, and no need justification for transfers, as long as we prevent gaming the system through simple expedients like preventing transfers of addresses from those who have tapped the free pool less than a year ago, and limiting needs-free transfers to less than a /12 per year.

Mike -

    A party which requests assignments from ARIN's free pool
    based on documented need, and then subsequently attempts
    to transfer them within 12 months is likely to be considered
    an attempt at number resource fraud under existing policy
    (as they filed documentation which explained their need and
    which they now no longer have, but now replaced by a desire
    for monetization of the obtained resources)   ARIN is highly
    likely to initiate NRPM 12 resource review to confirm that the
    original request for resources was not fraudulent in nature.

    I cannot state the converse is true (a party which transfers
    addresses suddenly having developed a new need for more
    addresses because of changing circumstances)  We would
    obviously carefully evaluate the request, but are unlikely to
    be able to prevent making an otherwise valid assignment
    without specific policy guidance which prevents that form
    of "gaming the system".  I do not know if such policy would
    be desirable but note it for completeness in consideration of
    the proposed draft policy.
