If we define "transfer" as "the entry in the ARIN database is changed", 
then yes.

If we define "transfer" as "the entity with the legal right to use or 
control the use of the numbers changes", not so much.

We don't actually have an ARIN "transfer policy"... we have a set of 
rules around which fields in a registration record may be changed by 
whom and under what circumstances. In some of the cases, Theseus' 
Paradox applies. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus )
