Hi Jason,

At the moment, the org could "buy" the /24 with the provision that
they'll take possession, update POCs and announce it via BGP
immediately but the seller will hold the registration until ARIN
transfer is approved. Right? They then renumber, sell and transfer the
/16 and then ask ARIN to transfer the /24 on the basis that they have
no IP addresses (having disposed of the unnecessarily large block) and
have actual control of the requested block anyway.

Why would ARIN need to fiddle with conditional approvals and uncertain
timelines for the renumbering dance?
