I believe we should make it easy to:

1. Make an agreement to acquire addresses in the quantity you believe you
2. If that agreement brings your total address holdings to less than 2x
your current or 24-month projected usage, get easy approval for the
transfer from ARIN under the Simplified requirements for demonstrated need
for IPv4 transfers defined in this draft policy.
3. Skip the LOA and ongoing legal stuff.
4. Use the addresses.
