It's been almost two months since ARIN 2015-7 was submitted. Anyone have thoughts on "Simplified requirements for demonstrated need for IPv4 transfers"?
The AC would love your input.

Draft Policy ARIN-2015-7
Simplified requirements for demonstrated need for IPv4 transfers
Date: 23 June 2015
ARIN transfer policy currently inherits all its demonstrated need
requirements for IPv4 transfers from NRPM sections 4. Because that
section was written primarily to deal with free pool allocations, it is
much more complicated than is really necessary for transfers. In
practice, ARIN staff applies much more lenient needs assessment to
section 8 IPv4 transfer requests than to free pool requests, as 24-month
needs are much more difficult to assess to the same level of detail.
This proposal seeks to dramatically simplify the needs assessment
process for 8.3 transfers, while still allowing organizations with
corner-case requirements to apply under existing policy if necessary.
8.1.x Simplified requirements for demonstrated need for IPv4 transfers
IPv4 transfer recipients must demonstrate (and an officer of the
requesting organization must attest) that they will use at least 50% of
their aggregate IPv4 addresses (including the requested resources) on an
operational network within 24 months.
Organizations that do not meet the simplified criteria above may instead
demonstrate the need for number resources using the criteria in section
4 of the NRPM.
a. Timetable for implementation: Immediate
b. Anything else
