Agreed.  When I wrote ARIN-prop-156, it seemed like the only way
forward on inter-RIR transfers with APNIC.  This was because
APNIC-prop-096 (which restores a needs basis to transfers within the
APNIC region) was not on their agenda for Busan, and because
ARIN-2011-1 requires compatible needs based transfer policies.  Since
I submitted ARIN-prop-156, APNIC put prop-096 back on the agenda, and
achieved consensus for it, and is moving it forward through their
policy process.  Therefore, prop-156 is no longer necessary, and I
believe something along the lines of ARIN-2011-1 is the best way
forward.  I hope we can develop consensus in Philadelphia and move it
forward after that.
