You are right, I referred to a workaround that would game the system, 
but there is no actual policy requiring LIRs in the RIPE service region 
to only use addresses in that region.

I was talking about IP addresses received through transfers and not the 
last /22.

Yes it is, with the DN out the window, any RIPE member (LIR) can receive 
through the transfer market as many IP addresses as they need/want. Are 
you actually calling me a liar? Because that would be quite personal and 
not nice coming from an ARIN AC which " feels that cross pollination of 
ARIN with other RIRs as well as ARIN with other networking groups is 
essential to making good address policy."

It is going to be €1600.

And if the RIPE NCC continues to grow in membership, we may see a 
further lowering of the fee next year.

- slide 3 is very interesting.

What do you mean by not unlimited space? An LIR can receive a 'free' /22 
from the RIPE NCC and because the demonstrated need has been removed 
from the policy, anyone can receive through transfers as many IP 
addresses as they need/want.
Actually, if 2014-05 is approved by the community, these 'unlimited' 
transfers will be possible to other regions as well (off course, 
depending on the other region's policy).

So my assessment is not realistic and your is?

This is not nice, again.

Anyway, we've moved a bit too much off-track. I think we should go back 
to the needs basis in the ARIN region.

My opinion is that for transfers, the DN should go away and that is the 
only way the registry can survive. As long as ARIN still has addresses 
to allocate, it should keep DN for that space but allow transfers within 
and outside the region to be correctly registered in the registry. These 
transfers do and will happen and we, brokers, see attempts very often. 
We are trying to raise a signal here but if the community or the ARIN 
Staff, AC, etc... decides to ignore the potential problem - there's not 
much we can do. We'll probably talk again in a few years :)
