It appears that the proposal would need to be given a fast track in order to even be approved before the likely runout of the available IPv4 pool, much less implemented.
As the present time, approvals of transfers also require assessment
against the same criteria that is used for issuance (only extended
to 24 months of need), so the assignment/allocation policies may
still have relevance even after regional IPv4 free pool runout.
I do not know how often this proposed policy would come into play
in future transfer requests, but it is quite possible it would be
germane in some cases.
