With the ARIN board recently adopting the AC's recommendation to 
re-instate the wait-list policy, we should now reconsider this draft 
policy to the wait-list policy in light of those changes. In the AC's 
recommendation, a 60 month transfer restriction was placed on any block 
received from the wait-list starting with the re-implementation of the 

Do you feel this 60 month restriction is sufficient?

This draft policy calls for prohibition on non M&A transfers and 
restricts M&A transfers to the same purpose as requested under the 
wait-list policy.

Would you prefer a complete prohibition on transfer of these blocks?  
Should an exception & restrictions be allowed for M&A transfers?

Your input here is helpful to help the AC determine if this draft policy 
should be updated to reflect the recently adopted re-instated wait-list 
policy text or if this draft policy should now be abandoned given the 60 
month restriction in the current wait-list policy.
