[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-204 Removing Needs Test from Small IPv4 Transfers (fwd)

In general, I think removing needs basis is an utterly bad idea.

However, if we were to do a 1 year trial at /20, to gather data and evaluate the actual impacts of such a policy, I would consider that acceptable.

	+	Does it actually lead to increased whois accuracy as proclaimed by proponents?
	+	Is there a measurable difference in time required to process requests?
	+	How much time is saved per request on average?

Are there other things we would want to learn from such a trial?

Opening the floodgates to /16 seems fool hearty at best IMHO.

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.
