I am in favor of the intent, although I would have
(at first thought) expected that the "resources
transferred will be subject to ARIN policies"
would have resulted in a review of the recipients
planned usage.  However, given the possible
interpretations (which historically any ambiguity
goes in favor of the requester), I can see that
some improvements might be valuable.  However,
I would suggest that the proposed language be
modified to allow for a transfer if the recipient
would otherwise meet the requirements that could
be used to approve the resources from the reserved

What about something like:

"Recipients of resources from a reserved pool ....
must demonstrate that the recipient would
qualify for those resources under existing policy,
and the resources may not be transferred out
of region".
