The main reason we didn't write a replacement for section 4 is this:

Organizations that do not meet the simplified criteria above may instead

There will likely be some sections of the community who feel that their
particular need for IPv4 is better met under section 4 than under this
simplified policy.  Rather than trying to identify every such need and
write in exceptions, I felt it would be better to first allow everyone
using the transfer market to opt out of section 4 entirely, and then once
we have some experience with which requests actually still end up using
section 4, we will have some data on which parts of it we need to keep and
which can be eliminated in a simplification cleanup proposal.
