Present policies require that the recipient "can demonstrate the need for
such resources in the amount which they can justify under current ARIN
policies showing how the addresses will be utilized within 24 months."
Due to the reference to present ARIN policies, the organizations that can
demonstrate the need would be service providers who need IP addresses for
the network services they provide, and end-user organizations receiving
assignments of IP addresses for use in its operational networks.
If this constraint on recipients is what you intended in your policy
proposal, then it would be best to make it explicit that transfers are
permitted to organizations with an operational need for addresses to
support their network deployment. I am confident that the ARIN AC can
work with you to determine the appropriate wording if that is the case.
