It depends on the type of network.

A hosting infrastructure based in VMs, may be replicated "online" to another DC in a different region.

The magic of that replication is a very good motivation for this policy, as clearly doesn't make any sense that you can replicate everying including no need for IPv4 renumbering and then you're forced to renumber your IPv6. No sense.

    I did find the RIPE-682 document, and I do see that RIPE allows IPv6 
    transfers.
    
    However, I still do not think this is a good idea for ARIN.  It adds an 
    extra level of complexity to both the reverse DNS zone and PKI. 
    Therefore, I am still opposed to allowing IPv6 RIR transfers from ARIN 
    blocks.
    
    In a practical sense, a organization that has moved from region to region 
    is going to end up with renumbering, unless they intend to pick up the 
    whole network at once and move it, incurring the downtime of a move of 
    physical equipment from region to region.  If an org intends to move to a 
    different region, I see no reason they cannot renumber during their move 
    to a new IPv6 block provided by their intended RIR.
    
    Of course, shortages do not allow this to happen in the IPv4 or 16 bit ASN 
    world, and these shortages are the main reason that such transfers were 
    allowed in the first place.
