>>> 3. Suggest updating the minimum transfer size specification to reflect "Current ARIN minimum allocation or assignment policy as defined in section 4 or section 6 or the original assignment size, whichever is smaller." since over time we have seen changes in these minimums and I would prefer that the transfer policy automatically track other policy changes.

> I believe that means you can transfer the original allocation size what ever it is and if you want to transfer something else it must conform to current policy, that means /28 within the range reserved in 4.10 and /24 for a small multihomed end user, or a /22 for a multihomed ISP, etc...
> Put another way, if you are doing only a partial transfer then you can't break things up smaller than current policy allows, and if the current block is already smaller, than you can only transfer the whole block.
