You have agreed in the past that it is possible to advertise addresses for which the name in Whois does not match the name of the advertiser.

The determination of appropriate verification of registration (for IP address
blocks to be announced in routing) is a decision made by service providers,
and varies widely.

When you put the facts together- no legal obstacle to the transaction involving legacy space and no operational obstacle to the transactions- along with the pecuniary factors, you have a recipe for off-the books transactions which would be invisible to the ARIN community.

The community has defined policies regarding transfers of address blocks,
and the registry is operated according to those policies.

The assertion "no legal obstacle to the transaction involving legacy space"
depends on one's view of rights to IP address space.  If you consider an IP
address block to be the unique entry in the Internet number registry system,
then there are likely some significant legal obstacles involved.  Buyers seeking
to obtaining rights to something else via a purported transaction might want to
take care in obtaining a rather clear description of their purchase.
