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.

Bill - 

  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.
