test.

must demonstrate the need for up to a 24-month supply of IP address
resources under current ARIN policies and sign an RSA."

Conditions on the recipient of the transfer: from "Recipients within the
ARIN region must demonstrate the need for up to a 24-month supply of IPv4
address space." to "For transfers larger than a /16 equivalent, recipients
in the ARIN region must demonstrate the need for up to a 24-month supply of
IP address resources under current ARIN policies and sign an RSA."

> Needs testing has been maintained for transfers largely because the
community wishes to ensure protection against hoarding and speculation in
the IPv4 market. This proposal seeks a middle ground between the
elimination of needs tests for transfers altogether, and the continuance of
needs tests for every transfer. This should help ARIN staff to reduce
transfer processing time, since most transfers have been smaller than /16.

Opposed.

ARIN and the community should focus on deploying ipv6 not pulling the fire
alarm on ppml.

This is not an emergency. These policies and forces have been around for
years.  Clinging to ipv4 is costly.
