I for one do not agree with this. ARIN is in the business of supporting
networks and network operators and doing a fine job of it. ARIN has no
place supporting commodity sales.
ARIN is not supporting network operators by forcing them into more expensive
and fraught transfer options.
Nor by preventing initial allocations via transfer.
