While I support the original version of this policy that completely
removed this clause and the requirement for a resource review as part of
an 8.2 transfer. I also support this version that removes the words
"aggregate" and "reclaim" from 8.2. I believe it is absolutely
necessary to resolve the conflict described in the problem statement and
this policy text accomplishes that goal.
While I support eliminating the requirement for a resource review as
part of an 8.2 transfer, I feel that goes beyond what is minimally
necessary to resolve the conflict described in the problem statement.
