No, that was as intended.  See below.

Currently, both 8.3 and 8.4 reference "current ARIN policies" for
demonstrating need ("The recipient must demonstrate the need for up to a
24-month supply of IP address resources under current ARIN policies").
This new section 8.1.x would add a new type of policy that would allow
organizations requesting simple 8.3 or 8.4 IPv4 transfers to bypass all the
complexity and detailed utilization reporting requirements of NRPM section
4.
