I’m saying that the alternate text Scott proposed is actually harder to understand and has the additional negative potential for unintended consequences of accidental desynchronization.

>> 
>> This proposal is technically sound and enables fair and impartial number policy by allowing transfers to specified recipients of blocks of a certain size to occur without a needs assessment performed by ARIN staff. The Staff and Legal Assessment raised no material issues, and there has been consistent support on both the mailing list and at the Dallas ARIN meeting for incorporating this mechanism into NRPM.

>> 
>> ARIN transfer policy currently inherits all its demonstrated need requirements for IPv4 transfers from NRPM sections 4. Because that section was written primarily to deal with free pool allocations, it is much more complicated than is really necessary for transfers.
>> 
>> This proposal allows organizations using 80% of their current space to double their current holdings via 8.3 or 8.4 specified transfers, up to a /16 equivalent.
