On June 18 I commented that "It would probably also provide a way to bypass
ARIN policy, so we should think carefully about whether all resources (such
as waiting list space) should be transferable this way."

Would it be better to limit the applicability of ARIN-2019-10 to only apply
to space that is not subject to transfer restrictions?
