I'm unconvinced; the new policy leaves it too open for enabling speculation.

> Simplified requirements for demonstrated need for IPv4 transfers
> Date: 23 June 2015
> Problem statement:
> 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.
> Policy statement:
> 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.
