[arin-ppml] Thoughts on 2015-7

Reducing the burden on ARIN staff is not part of the problem statement for
this proposal (though it might be a side effect, depending on how they
implement it).  The main goal here is to reduce the administrative burden
on organizations who need to acquire IPv4 space via transfer.  That burden
may actually be higher for smaller entities who don't have experience with
and processes in place for jumping through ARIN's hoops.

I don't think this policy would have much impact on the ability of large
well-funded entities to purchase as much address space as they like.
Currently, those organizations simply write a contract that gives them full
rights to the address space they're buying, and allows them to transfer the
space with ARIN whenever they are ready to put it into use on their network
(or can otherwise pass ARIN's needs justification tests).
