Dale, I invite you to review the presentation from ARIN staff about this
issue which encouraged the conversation about this issue at the Chicago
meeting and ended up with a small group of us creating this draft policy
to address the issue.


The basic issue is that under the current transfer policy you have to
qualify for address space under existing v4 policies to be able to do a
transfer.  The existing v4 policies require an ISP to have address space
from another entity to be able to receive an allocation from ARIN.  
Thus, after run-out there may not be a way for some organizations to get
into transfer market.

Other draft policies have been put forward to address this issue in
different ways, those include ARIN-2014-13, ARIN-2014-14, &
ARIN-2014-18, ARIN-2014-20

Hope this helps,
