They key is how ARIN would implement the proposed policy, which will happen latter in the staff assessment after the proposal is a draft policy. 

Andrew - 
  We actually consider that paragraph regarding "repeated requests" within the context 
  of the policy section in which it was adopted, so 'requests' refers to requests for ARIN-
  issued resources (i.e. those that could lead to "Unmet Requests"), and hence do not 
  consider it to be applicable to transfers.   

  If the community desires such a restriction, clearer policy language would be required.
