I authored this proposal to bring up the issue as noted in the policy
experience report at the last meeting. While I initially believed this
was an inconsistency that should be corrected, I no longer feel this is
the case after weighing the discussion by other community members. I
believe that the current transfer policy requirements for an initial
block larger than a /24 as found in 8.5.5 are simple and can be easily
accomplished by an organization which desires to transfer a block larger
than a /24. Adding additional complexity to the transfer policy is not
desired to correct a small inconsistency with the largely obsolete
section 4 allocation policy.
I do however believe a discussion should be held at the next public
policy meeting and if a solid direction cannot be found on this issue,
the AC should abandon this draft.
