Hi Joe,

In fact these transfers are not policy today. According to
https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2011_1.html, draft 2011-1 which
proposes to create the transfers is still held under advisement by the
board. I concede they're likely to adopt it despite the deficiencies.
Assuming they do, I expect to concur with your reasoning here.

As has been pointed out to me in times past, until the board actually
does adopt a policy, follow-ons predicated on adoption of said policy
are premature. 2012-1 has no caveat for inactivation should 2011-1
somehow fail to become policy. Its recommendation to last call is
procedurally independent of that action.
