Nice to see.. hopefully it doesn't add too much to ARIN workloads, but 
we know that many of the little voices out there will thank you.

I still think more conversation is needed on this one, there are a lot 
of implications, positive and negative.

+1, ARIN has enough troubles dealing with issues that are of a higher 
priority, so let's work on dealing with more important issues.
A shame that there isn't a replacement pointing to a new responsible 
entity of course.

This one, while good in intent, is still confusing.. (eg the language on 
the changes concerns /16's which isn't really a small IPv4 Transfer)

+1, all logical, can't really see how that can be abused.

>    Draft Policy ARIN-2014-16: Section 4.10 Austerity Policy Update

Small concern..
2. the organization must show immediate use (within 30 days) of 25% of 
the allocation;

Is 30 days too aggressive?  Upstream provider issues, unexpected 
technical issues?

This one I will be commenting more on, in response to Owen's comments, 
regarding language surrounding supporting other language elsewhere 
concerning 'rwhois'.  General concept isn't bad, but adding language 
will ensure more professional and proscribed usage of the remaining IPv4
