That is a question for ARIN staff to weigh in on.
What “independently verifiable evidence” would be acceptable if no assets (I assume this means servers or routers rather than human beings) using the resources are being moved?

Wouldn't the existing language ("The recipient must provide independently verifiable evidence that they have acquired the assets that use the resources to be transferred from the current registrant.") be good enough for those scenarios? The additional OR clause seems mostly meant to deal with defunct entities where the assets that use the resources are long gone, and all that's left is the original corporate entity. Are there any cases in the government realm where that is a problem as well, and M&A transfers can't be completed under the existing rules?

This assumes that only corporate entities merge, acquire, or re-organize. How would state agencies or an inter-institution research group produce the required documentation to facilitate the movement of resources given the lack of independently verifiable information?
Similarly, a function might be transferred between state agencies, but we might not be acquiring an entire corporate entity (as we’re a state agency).

These two changes will leave Section 8.2 looking like this:
8.2. Mergers and Acquisitions
ARIN will consider requests for the transfer of number resources in the case of mergers, acquisitions, and reorganizations under the following conditions:
The current registrant must not be involved in any dispute as to the status of the resources to be transferred.
The new entity must sign an RSA covering all resources to be transferred.
The resources to be transferred will be subject to ARIN policies.
The minimum transfer size is the smaller of the original allocation size or the applicable minimum allocation size in current policy.
AND one or more of the following:
The recipient must provide independently verifiable evidence that they have acquired the assets that use the resources to be transferred from the current registrant.
The recipient must show that they have acquired the entire corporate entity which is the current registrant.
