With my community member and author hats on. And in attempt to start this conversation before the formal meeting starts on Thursday.

Yes, I believe that the rules that were developed for managing the free pool are not as applicable when IPv4 number resources are being transferred in the marketplace. Simplifying the transfer requirements by breaking the linkage to section 4, I think is the best path forward.

Yes, I believe simpler rules would benefit the community by providing additional clarity on transfers and also can provide better predictability for organizations which decide to purchase IPv4 number rights.

As the author of 2016-5, I believe this policy provides the best path forward. 

I also support the ideas in 2015-7, but I believe further work would still be needed if this policy was the only change. 

I don't support 2016-3 as this policy does not deal with the clarity needed for the largest transfers. 

2016-4 is complementary and overlapping change to 2016-5 and thus I support that change, although I believe the larger change of 2016-5 is preferable.
