[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-157 Section 8.3 Simplification

I am opposed to this proposal.

1.	It creates significant feature creep vs. the original very limited scope
	of 8.3 which was intentional. Market based resource transfers are
	an undesirable, but, necessary mechanism in light of IPv4 exhaustion
	and addresses not managed under ARIN RSA as a result of early
	allocation policies (prior to ARIN's existence). Expanding these transfers
	to include ASNs and IPv6 resources is an undesirable effect inherent in
	this proposal.

2.	It does not specify what constitutes a qualified and specified recipient or
	who determines qualifications, specifications, etc.

3.	In the rationale the author criticizes the original text for being imprecise and
	yet this text is vague to the point of being downright confusing.

> The original text was overly complex and imprecise. The modified language has been reduced to be clear with respect to allowing specified transfers of "number resources". The definition of "number resources" is any IPv4 address or addresses, IPV6 address or addresses or a 2 byte or 4 byte ASN individually or collectively.
