Please re-read section 8 of the NRPM and then if you still think there is a problem, by all means, attempt to describe the problem such that it can be addressed. However, please make that part of a separate thread as it is utterly and completely unrelated to proposal 178.

Well not completely NOTHING to do with transfers.  But, I'll agree it has nothing to do with the examples in question, transferring resources out of the ARIN region, that is where the recipient is outside ARIN region and as a result the resources will end up under the control of another RIR. 

However, It does have a little to do with a transfers within the ARIN region or to the ARIN region, that is where the recipient is inside the ARIN Region and the resources remain or end up under ARIN control.  But in this case I believe the policy allows the intended result of such a transfer to a recipient within the region.

Steve, and others does that make sense as written?  Or, does the policy or rationale need additional clarification on that point?
