8.5.5. Block size

Organizations may qualify for the transfer of a larger initial block, or an
additional block, by providing documentation to ARIN which details the use
of at least 50% of the requested IPv4 block size within 24 months. An
officer of the organization shall attest to the documentation provided to
ARIN.

Organizations may qualify for an additional block by using a projection of
their address use from 6-24 months of allocations or assignments just prior
to the transfer request.


I think between 8.3, 8.5.5, and 8.5.6 this still becomes a hazardous
guessing game that doesn't account for unexpected growth.  While i'm not
fully comfortable with immediate excision of the needs tests, I do believe
that relaxing them to a significant degree would be a step in the right
direction.  If you're going to re-align an organization's projection
timeframe to 6-24 months, it only makes sense to align 8.3 and 8.4 with
that new standard of 6 months as well.  That way even if an organization is
wrong, there's more than 1 opportunity to correct it within a year
(assuming their only source is ARIN); and increases in pricing or address
availability are limited to a 6 months timeframe.

Is there any interest in moving towards a slow-end of the needs based
tests; where the minimum 12 months (in 8.3, 8.4, and 8.5.5) becomes 6,
after a review period the 6 becomes 3 and later the 3 becomes none as the
transfer market is monitored throughout the slow-end to ensure this isn't
enabling the negative scenario(s) it's designed to prevent?
