I agree.  The only reason for this transfer thing was the shortage of IPv4
addresses and 16 bit ASN numbers.  There is no shortage of IPv6 addresses
or 32 bit ASN.

Therefore, I agree that IPv6 transfers and 32 bit ASN transfers should not
be permitted, even for M&A.

I have almost exactly the opposite opinion. No shortage means no cause to game the system. No gaming of the system means the transfer is requested for reasonable, pragmatic causes. Like avoiding renumbering pain. Why should this be prevented?

Where there is a plausible reason to believe someone is gaming the system or just generally being careless and wasteful, that's where I want to see limits and strict evaluation.
