There are a number of reasons that the community tied 8.3 transfers to “current IPv4 policy” and other than the timeframe exemption specifically granted in 8.3, I believe that fairness dictates that ARIN should treat transfers in an identical manner to free pool allocations and assignments.

I disagree. While it is not specifically called out, the simple fact is that 8.3 transfer policy specifically states that IPv4 transfers should be subject to the same policies as IPv4 free pool allocations. It does make an exception for the “speculation timeframe” allowed in the request, but otherwise I believe that the community’s expectation is that they are treated the same and subject to the same policies and limitations.

How do other members of the community feel about this?
