Matthew -

A typical example is a someone who believes that they are a legacy 
resource holder because they are the technical or administrative 
contact on an address block (but the organization field points to 
a company from long ago) who comes to ARIN wishing to update their 
organization field to match a more current organization. In these
cases, because the organization field is changing, the request is 
a transfer.

Upon entering into the process (which in their view started simply 
as "updating their ARIN info"), it is made clear that ARIN will need
to see appropriate documentation (to insure this isn't actually a 
hijacking) and to see utilization information per NRPM 8.2.

At this point, some number of requesters will abandon the process.
Some of those are because of lack of documentation or effort to 
produce same, and some are because of fears related to utilization,
agreements, etc.

I hope this help explains at least one very typical portion of the 
transfer abandon rate.
