I OPPOSE the transfer of number resources to APNIC where restrictions
by LIRS like China have the practical effect of a discordant,
non-recpirocal transfer policy.
I would support the transfer of AS numbers in the generic case if this
discordant policy problem could be satisfactorily solved. I consider
the discordant policy problem to be more significant than what I see
as the relatively minor technical need for AS number transfers,
especially across RIRs.
For lack of any compelling reason to disallow it, I support AS number
transfers within the ARIN region.

I think this text is clumsy and it does not fit well with the rest of
section 8.4 which focuses on IPv4 addresses.
