Ah. In that case, I'm opposed to the policy as written.

As a practical matter, the text does not sensibly fit where indicated.
If placed there, it would make the surrounding policies harder, not
easier, to understand.

As a policy matter, I'm virulently opposed to using said criteria for
out-region 8.4 transfers.
