If that new internet exchange point is now independent of your org, and is 
in the ARIN region, it should be obtaining its resources under 6.10.1. 
These allocations are specifically for things like internet exchange 
points.  If they desired independence from the beginning and the ability 
to avoid renumbering in the future, they should of obtained their 
resources directly from ARIN.

Now that they want their independence after using your non exchange point 
block since their formation, it does look like they need to renumber into 
a proper exchange point block, at ARIN or the RIR where they are located 
if they are not in the ARIN region.

I have looked around a bit and found that currently only RIPE has a 
current policy that might permit transfers of IPv6 resources to another 
RIR.  If there are others, please identify the RIR and the policy, as this 
would be useful in this discussion.
