Hi David,

Would you mind expanding on that a bit? If an IPv4 transfer market could be shown to exhibit better liquidity in the absence of any ARIN needs analysis (it hasn't, but for the sake of the argument assume someone offered a satisfactory proof that it would) would you come down on the side of better liquidity (addresses are available to be
acquired) or documented need like we've applied to the free pool this past decade (only those who deserve addresses get them)?

<Kevin> Isn't the liquidity of a transfer market in itself outside of ARIN's scope?

Are these not matters of network infrastructure policy outside ARIN's scope?
