Thanks for the pointer.  And, that's another milestone ticking by.

I'm a little surprised it took this long.  I'm also a little surprised 
that the first one is only a /24, it seems a little anticlimactic.

So digging around a little; From the following; It was 
that was transferred.


Looking that up in ARIN Whois, it says it was an "Early Registrations, 
Transferred to APNIC".



If possible I would really prefer that 8.4 transfers were differentiated 
from EXRs in Whois.  I recognize from the registry process point of view 
they are virtually identical.  However, they are occurring for very 
different reasons and I think that needs differentiation in Whois.

I think something as simple as removing "Early Registrations" and 
leaving "Transferred to APNIC" in the Net Type, and maybe changing ERX 
to XFR in the Name, something like that would be sufficient differentiation.

Great, I was suggesting that the other RIR involved be documented with 
the transferred prefix.  However, as long as Whois glue similar to the 
above is included by the RIR that is the source of the transferred block 
then I'm not sure additional documentation of the RIR involved is really 
necessary, the transferred prefix itself should be sufficient.
