Hi John,

Plenty of ambiguity. Which criteria must be met for the legacy
registration? The current RIR criteria? The criteria as practiced by
InterNIC when ARIN made its promise? The criteria as practiced by
InterNIC when the legacy registration was made? Some criteria laid out
directly in RFC2050? If you accept RFC 2050 as controlling, one of the
RIRs must approve the transfer. Not necessarily ARIN. But in the
context of ARIN's promise regarding legacy registrations, it's not
obvious which criteria ARIN is expected to apply when evaluating the
request. And at least some of the candidates boil down to: are you
really you? Ok. Transfer approved.
