There is also the matter of consistency: when an organisation ends up
moving a portion or all of their resources to another RIR, it would be
strange if the ASNs have to be left behind. Renumbering ASNs can be a
very expensive and involved process, so simply 'requesting a new one' in
the other region may not be feasible.
