I do not understand this reasoning. There is no more free pool. If Org A 
is not using "valuable resources" and they are transferred to Org B who 
was mistaken about how fast they will use them, then Org B is also not 
using "valuable resources". But if instead Org A can't transfer them, 
then Org B doesn't get them and Org A still has "valuable resources" 
which are "tied up". They're "tied up" not being used either way... and 
ARIN can't do anything about it.

If you really want to make sure that these resources don't sit unused, 
make it so that after Org A transfers to Org B then if Org B doesn't use 
all of them, Org B can sell what they're not using.
