We purchased addresses in the ARIN region wth the intention of moving them to APNIC in the future. We did so because the size blocks we needed were not available in the APNIC region. So now we are talking about hurting my business for ... what reason? How do network operations benefit from this proposal?
Currently, there are certain registries that are operating like roach motels for IP addresses. KR-NIC, CN-NIC are examples.
AfriNIC is discussing a similar proposal and a similar proposal was discussed in LACNIC.
It is hoped that by implementing this policy it will put pressure on those registries to be more cooperative with the global community in allowing bi-directional transfers.
That is how it helps network operations. Admittedly, it’s a short-term pain for a longer term gain, but that is the intent.

>>> And the problem statement on this draft policy is:
>>> Currently ARIN's requirement that inter-RIR transfer policies be reciprocal has a glaring hole in it in that RIRs which have NIRs and/or a two-hop RIR transfer process can be used to circumvent the intent of the requirement. Rather than eliminate the requirement, a better approach would be to close the loophole.
