I will point out that that there is still ongoing discussion about the "of the same resource" clause.

Personally, I favor restricting transfers based on having received any resource rather than having to track them separately.,

> Rationale:
> We already allow transfer of ASNs within the ARIN region. The change will accomplish two things. First there is inconsistent language in 8.4 eg "IPv4 Address" v. "IPv4 Number Resource(s)" and second, it will allow the transfer of ASNs between RIRs through 8.4 and using the standards we have already established for IPv4 transfers. For many of the same reasons that we allow transfer of IP addresses, we should allow transfers of ASNs and to help insure that idle resources are both recovered and utilized efficiently and where needed, and to allow the registry to be updated to reflect who is actually using which ASNs.
> Version 1.1 changes the title, clarifies the resulting policy language slightly, and explicitly includes the resulting policy language in the policy statement.
> Version 1.2 clarifies that the 12-month restriction on having received a transfer, allocation, or assignment applies separately to IPv4 number resources and ASNs.
