This is my major issue with the rewrite. The reality is that the current text
in last call doesn't deal with another region relaxing their policies to still
fit within the word "compatible".

A policy needs to be able to be forward looking. The rewrite of 2011-1 would
now allow another RIR to modify the intent of our policy by solely relaxing their own polices.

While I believe the ARIN AC has done a lot towards cleaning up the text, the shift of 
responsibility to outside our region is deeply concerning. 

Example Policy Proposal from Region XYZ post adoption:

"Parties requesting Inter-RIR transfers may do so with 48 month justification criteria
based on 50 percent current utilization".
