The intention is to place the communities right to know above the
transfer parties right to privacy with respect to legacy number
resources and legacy ASN's. It would also be useful for you in order
to provide all of us with relevant data as to how a market is
operating to the standards we are setting. I know the latter is
probably easily accomplished even with confidentiality restrictions in
place, but the former is much harder without a policy standard. Is
there a better way to do such a thing? In the absence of a needs test
for legacy nr/asn's for example, I don't see a lot of need for
confidentiality requirements.
