I'd rather look at data than conclusions:

"Just eleven (11) transfers have occurred within the ARIN region.
Fifteen additional transfers, including a /13 (524,288 addresses),
have been inter-regional from ARIN to APNIC."

So where is the flood of transfer requests mentioned in the Problem Statement?

I don't see it.

If RS says it is a problem, I'd be happy to believe them, but I've
never known them to complain about workload before.
