Hi David,

The language was introduced in draft policy 2010-6 whose rationale stated:

"This policy also should dramatically increase the completion rate for
transfer requests, as the evaluation of whether space is efficiently
utilized after the transfer can occur in parallel, completely
independently of the transfer request, and can continue even if the
transfer request is abandoned."

Still think renumbering to achieve efficient utilization as a
consequence of the 8.2 transfer wasn't intended to be a requirement?
