In view of your clarification, I support the proposal.

Would they be able to apply for and receive a new IPv4 /24 from the wait list, transfer market or the special IPv6 pool, and then sell their existing space under 8.2?  Or would they run afoul of the timing requirements of the proposed wording?  If they were permitted to do this, then I support.  (They could obviously carve out a /24 from their existing space and sell the rest, but that would greatly increase fragmentation.)
