Incapable? No. But it is likely inappropriate. If one of them has a plan 
to do something over the next 3 years that needs a /7 of space and they 
can find a seller and can afford the price, why should ARIN be 
preventing that sale because the needs justification window is shorter 
than 3 years? It isn't like either of them is going to just up and 
disappear, right?
