I'd support transferability of IPv6 resources too - but that is a
different topic and worthy of its own thread.

Why restrict it to 16-bit ASNs? What is the benefit of such a

It seems somewhat discriminatory that older companies (who due to
historical reasons are more likely to have a 16-bit ASN) can transfer
their ASN to another RIR, while newcomers (more likely to have a 32-bit
ASN) are denied to opportunity to transfer their ASN.

I support transferability of all ASNs, small or large.
