I support option #3.

I'm curious if it would be better to reference time
periods from other sections of the NRPM, rather
than hard-coding a specific term here?  IE, if we
limit transfer requests to a 24-month supply, then
tie the anti-transfer period to be the same duration
as the supply length, so that if we extend or contract
the supply length for transfers, this anti-flip language
inherits the same change.   This doesn't affect my
support for option #3, I'm just looking to see if there's
ways we can limit the potential for the NRPM getting
'out of sync' with itself in the future, if we change one
section but don't catch all the related sections like this.
