Yes, for some definition of "complete". For other definitions, like "the 
recipient is able to route traffic to the addresses and assign those 
addresses to hosts and use those addresses for connectivity to the 
global Internet", "completing" a transfer is actually quite easy.

So then the question is... what good is a registry that "accurately" 
reflects that those transfers never happened to the people who might 
actually ever look in the registry? And I assume people *do* look, 
otherwise there wouldn't be a need to maintain a *public* registry at 
all, would there?
