How about it? Is Owen correct? Under 2011-1 where a registrant in good
standing has requested an 8.3 transfer to a RIR that had been found to
have a needs-based policy and is either not suspected of fraud or has
passed an audit, are there any circumstances not specifically written
in the NRPM in which ARIN would not "agree to the transfer?"

"Inter-regional transfers may take place only via RIRs who agree to
the transfer and share compatible, needs-based policies."
